Why Do I Have To Pay?
There are many roundups, events, and conferences held around the world. One of the most common misconceptions about these gatherings is that because they are 12-step meetings and as “there are no dues or fees for membership” there should be no charge to attend. Conferences and Roundups are special events, not regular meetings. They require months of planning and preparation and a significant amount of money to produce. The conference is supported and paid through registration fees, fundraisers, raffles and individual contributions. Due to location capacity, attendance is limited to registered attendees and a limited number of scholarships. Scholarships will be issued on site at registration beginning Thursday, May 16th after 3PM. Those requesting a scholarship are expected to donate to the scholarship fund – “we are self-supporting through our own contributions” – to help others that are also in need.
