April GSO Conference Has AA Unity for Theme

Guiding theme of the Eighteenth Annual General Service Conference of Alcoholics Anonymous was "Personal Recovery Depends on AA Unity." Delegates from every state and province in the United States and Canada deliberated almost around the clock during the five-and-one-half-day Conference, April 22-27, at the Hotel Roosevelt, New York City, to express the consensus of the Fellowship regarding the vital need for unity among AA members.

The theme of unity was woven into all presentations, discussion, and debate by Delegates who gathered to express the voice of North American AA. In the keynote address, Dr. John L. Norris, nonalcoholic Chairman of the Board of Trustees, said that unity not only was necessary for our survival today, but was AA's "bridge to the future."
