The 2020 A VISION FOR US – RI State Convention has been


Alcoholics Anonymous with Al-anon participation | Area 61 Assembly of Alcoholics Anonymous

It is with much heartache that the RI Convention Committee has decided to cancel this year’s convention. Due to the COVID-19 Global Pandemic, it is impossible to ensure the safety, health and wellbeing of our attendees, most of whom are older and/or compromised.

The Convention Committee wishes to extend a thank you to all registrants for your patience in these trying times. The refund process will begin on 3/20/20 for both people who registered online and for those who submitted a check or cash. Given that there were over six hundred (600) registrants at the time of cancellation, it is our expectation that refunds will take us approximately a week to fully complete.

Those who registered online will receive an email notifying them that a refund has been issued for their purchase. The refund will be credited to the bank card on file with PayPal for that purchase. Expect the refund to appear on the card three to five days after receipt of the email. Those who paid by check or with cash can expect to receive a check in the mail in approximately seven to ten days.

Many of the awesome members of our community have expressed a desire to support the convention regarding unrecoverable expenses. Should you desire to do so, donations can be received two ways:
