GET INVOLVED: The Golden Empire RoundUp will hold meetings for 2017 on the following dates and places:
If you are interested in working on this annual event, please plan to attend. Even if you just think that you may be interested, join us. It is a great opportunity to be of service regardless of your length of sobriety.
WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY? One of the most common misunderstandings within the fellowship is that AA conventions and conferences are AA meetings and since "There are no dues or fees for AA membership..." there should be no dues or fees to attend. Conferences are special events, not regular AA meetings. The Golden Empire RoundUp is self-supporting. No group monies are used to pay for the event, as the cost of the RoundUp is funded only through registration and event fees. Expenses covered by the event include, but are not limited to: costs for the facility, speaker accomodations, printing, postage and supplies.
REGISTRATION: All attendees must register. Mail-in registration forms are available on this site as well as at most meetings. A seperate registration form must be completed for each attendee. The basic registration fee is $25.00 ($15.00 for Al-Ateens) and covers all events with the exception of the Saturday Banquet, the Al-Anon Luncheon, Golf Tournament, Fun Run, Ice Cream Social, and the Dance. All registrants have full access to all meetings, both Marathon Meetings and Speaker Meetings. They are welcome in the Hospitality Suite where beverages and snacks will be available for a nominmal cost.
