Today we finished this year’s convention in Cebu, and it was a smashing success!
200 people registered during the 3 day event, and they came from 14 different countries! As usual we had our countdown on Saturday evening, and John G. was the first man “up” with 52 years sobriety! He got sober when he was 23 years, old, and is still going strong. On the other end, we found a newcomer who had been sober only 4 days! We enjoyed speakers from most groups attending, and this convention even required that the women had their own selected meetings! That has NEVER happened before, so it’s promising for the future conventions, and AA in the Philippines.
In addition we also had several Al-anon meetings at this years convention.
At the business meeting before the countdown, the convention decided that the 37th convention will take place in
