Why Register?

Our Seventh Tradition states, “Being self-supporting is an important part of our new way of life.” (Basic Text, page 70, 6th Edition). Registration fees pay for the facilities we use, the coffee we drink, the DJ’s we dance to, and all other expenses related to putting on the convention.

Why Register In Advance?

The easy answer—to save money! Pre‐registration is $5 cheaper than registering on‐site. But, it’s not the only reason to register early. All online registrations received by February 12, 2018 will receive a gift. Also, when addicts register and buy event tickets early, we can better plan to meet everyone’s needs at the convention.

Registration Information

Take advantage of the reduced cost for early registration. After February 12, rates go up! Mail‐in registrations must be postmarked by March 14, 2018. Online registration is available through April 6, 2018. After April 6, only onsite registrations will be taken beginning at 10:00 am on Friday, April 13, 2018 at the Roland E. Powell Convention Center. No checks will be accepted on-site .
