Heroin Anonymous World Convention

2018 Convention

Hi everyone,

Portland, OR is really excited about the convention coming up this August. We are in the process of creating workshops and panels for the convention and really want to know what

topics and issues are being discussed around the country. What kind of workshops or panels do YOU think would be meaningful and useful for YOUR fellowship?

Here are some of the ideas the committee is already throwing around:

● How to start and run mid level business meetings: Area, District, or Intergroup meetings.

● How to start and run a Hospital and Institutions (H&I) committee and start taking

meetings into treatment centers and jails.

● What is “Singleness of Purpose” and why is it important.

● MAT and maintenance drugs: A traditions-based, personal experience panel.

Are we on the pulse here, or are there other topics we’re not thinking about?

So please ask yourself: “What would my group want to learn and discuss at the HA World Convention this year?”

And please let us know at – haconvention@gmail.com

Thank you,

Paul F.
