Proposals for 2021 ACA Annual Business Conference

The 2021 ACA Annual Business Conference will be held on Saturday, April 24th and Sunday, April 25th. In preparation each year the ACA community is given the opportunity to submit proposals to be considered during the Business Conference.

Those proposals have now been returned for our consideration. Each group has an opportunity to determine their own consensus on whether or not each proposal should be on the Conference agenda for consideration. Each meeting is autonomous, so each meeting will have the opportunity to vote online on these proposals from February 15 through March 31.

The ACA WSO offered 3 Town Hall meetings where the proposal submitters were given a chance to give more information about their proposals. Six proposals were presented at each Town Hall.

The Town Halls were held on Jan 24th, Feb 1st and Feb 6th and were recorded for later viewing.

During February and March please take time to consider these proposals in your meeting so you can participate in the direction of the WSO.

You can find links to the recordings of the town hall sessions, the proposals in five different languages and the ballot to record your group’s vote on the ACA WSO website at: https://acawso.org/category/ballot-prep/.

Your group has an opportunity to vote until March 31.

Ready, Set GO!! for January – April

Weekly Ready, Set, GO!! sessions have been scheduled out through the beginning of April. What a wonderful way for newbies and veterans to review all the steps and tools that ACA has to offer. Each week a number of steps are reviewed and participants have an opportunity to reflect on together. During the last 2 weeks Inner Child tools are introduced and practiced. If you can fit this into your schedule it will be well worth your time and will give you tools for recovery going forward. Below you will find flyers, dates and times, and information to participate in the upcoming sessions.  

Inviting the World to Our 2020 Annual Conference

We are inviting the world to our 2020 Annual Conference to be held on October 17th and 18th. All the information you will need can be found here: https://westgreatlakesaca.org/2020-annual-conference-resources. As new information and resources for the event come in we will continue to update this page.

Also remember there will be opportunities for service during the event. We are looking for a number of people to co-host, monitor chat, introduce speakers, answer a few questions so the presenter and all those who are helping to make the events happen don’t have to work all day. If you are interested drop a note to secretary@wglaca.org to let us know.

We are invited to join in Wednesdays, Oct 21, 28, Nov 4, 11, 18, 25, 2020, at 4:00 am Central Time (after the time change it will be 3:00 AM). Please click the flyer below for more information.
