This is the year!

YOUR AA FRIENDS all over the state of Colorado are getting ready to welcome you to the 40th Anniversary International Convention of Alcoholics Anonymous in Denver the weekend of July 4-6, 1975. Denver's modern Convention Complex can hospitably contain the 15,000 sober alcoholics and their families expected to gather from all over the world.

Starting in mid-November, thousands of AAs began mailing their reservations and housing forms to the General Service Office, addressing them to: Convention, Box 459, Grand Central Station, New York, N.Y. 10017. All registrations are handled there. Yes, even the wife of the Denver Host Committee chairman has to register through GSO. It cuts down confusion and disappointment and assures fair and equal treatment of every AA member, whether he lives in Denver or Dublin, Boston or Brisbane.
