International Convention of AA

2015 marks the 80th anniversary of AA, and there might be no better way of celebrating than being in a meeting with so many people - tens of thousands of AA members - that it needs to be held in a stadium! It's an incredible experience not to be missed.

NYCYPAA 3rd Annual Unity Day & Boat Party

Unity Day and the Boat Party are back for the third year in a row! If you're new to the scene and don't know what you're in store for, Unity Day is like a mini-convention at the Midtown Hilton. After a day of events, fellowshipping, and fun, the party moves over to the west side where over 500 sober people of all ages jump on a boat and dance the night away while sailing around Manhattan. We've sold out every year, and tickets go up to $30 on June 1st, so don't wait too long. More info below.

Delegate's Day of Sharing

  • PS 40

Area 49 SENY presents Delegate's Day of Sharing, hosted by NYCYPAA on March 28, 2015. The event will take place at PS 40 (320 E. 20 St. betw. 1st & 2nd Aves).

Are you a GSR or interested in what will be addressed at this year's General Service Conference? If so, come join us at the Delegate's Day of Sharing! There will be presentations providing the background information on the questions our Delegate has asked for feedback on - see the Delegate's Questionnaire. Passing on this information will help your group better answer these questions so our delegate can be aware of your group's conscience when voting on matters that will affect AA throughout the US & Canada! Breakfast & lunch will also be provided.

If you received a flyer at the recent SENY Committee meeting, it mistakenly had our web address at the bottom instead of aaseny.org. Here's the correct flyer. We are honored that SENY asked us to host the event, but this is a SENY event!

47th Annual SENY Convention

  • Westchester Marriott Hotel

For the weekend of March 20 - 22, all of Southeastern New York will be coming together for the biggest annual event of our General Service Area. It's a great way to learn more about service and supercharge your sobriety with great meetings all weekend long. If you can't stay the whole weekend, be sure to at least come up Saturday when most of the programming takes. You can register on-site or at aaseny.org - registration is $15, the (optional) banquet is $74, and hotel rooms are $128/night + tax. Buying a banquet ticket and booking a hotel room is a great way to help the Convention be financially self-supporting!

NYCYPAA will have our usual outreach table, and two of our members will be speaking at workshops. We are also hosting a forum - "Partnering with the Young People's Community in AA" - on Saturday from 2:30 - 3:45 pm. It's great chance for everyone to share ideas, questions, concerns, and experience to help us brainstorm how to build unity and advance our primary purpose. This will be the fourth open forum we've hosted, and every time they've proven to be really valuable and enriching.

We're also trying to put together a list of people willing to help greet at the Convention - they need volunteers. If you can set aside an hour of your time, it would be greatly appreciated. Please email Nadia S, our SENY Liaison.

Be sure to check out the program!
