A common misconception regarding AA conferences and conventions is that they are regular AA meetings.
While parts of this conference have a similar format to regular AA meetings, Gopher State Roundup is not a regular meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous.
- Gopher State Roundup is a special AA event with Al-Anon participation.
- Gopher State Roundup is self-supporting; no contributions from AA groups are used to pay for this event.
- Expenses such as hotel fees, travel
andlodging for the speakers, and printed material are paid through registration fees.
- No baskets are passed during this event. As stated in our Seventh Tradition, “We are fully self-supporting thru our own contributions”.
