2020 INTERNATIONAL CONVENTION A VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE
July 1, 2020 – July 31, 2020
As most of you are aware, in the spring the decision was made to cancel the 2020
International Convention due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While this was a difficult
decision, and a disappointing outcome for those planning to attend, we are confident it
was the most appropriate action to ensure the health and safety of our members. There
is good news, however, as we now have an opportunity to bring together many of the
special components that make International Conventions memorable — by utilizing a
For this purpose, we are planning a 2020 International Convention digital
site. Throughout the month of July, the 2020 International Convention will come alive
online to provide a new experience that includes A.A. speakers; a digital “Carrying the
Message Pavilion”; sharing from nonalcoholic friends of A.A. and special guests linked to
our history; a presentation of the 40 millionth Big Book; a new Archives video on the
history of A.A.; an AA Grapevine video created for the Convention, and more.
The virtual experience will also help us reaffirm the International Convention’s goals,
which include rededicating ourselves to the primary purpose of A.A.; sharing the success
and growth of the A.A. program around the globe; and letting the world know that A.A. is
alive, flourishing and available as a community resource internationally.
We will be up and running on aa.org by July 1, 2020, to coincide as closely as possible
with the original Convention date, and the site will be available throughout the entire
month of July.
