In 2020 the Tennessee Conference of Young People in Alcoholics Anonymous will be held in beautiful Chattanooga, Tennessee! The four-day conference is a celebration of sobriety, spirituality, and love. Activities will include meetings, panel discussions, inspiring speakers, and lots of fun activities. We invite you to come and share your experience, strength, and hope. "It works if we work it together" certainly applies to sobriety, but it's a good idea to keep in mind as we enjoy this conference as one community.
Yours in service. 2020 Conference Committee
Past and Future TCYPAA Conferences
In 1983, the Tennessee Conference of Young People in Alcoholics Anonymous (TCYPAA) was founded for the purpose of furthering the principles of AA among young people. The Conference is a joyful weekend of sharing experience, strength, and hope among the young and young at heart in AA. It is held annually, typically in February. Any young people of AA who wish to bid should present a bid packet meeting each of the Bidding Requirements at the next conference. Bid packets are submitted on Friday night at the Conference, and bid presentations are given on Saturday morning. The Advisory Council decision on where the next year’s TCYPAA will be held is announced after the speaker meeting on Saturday night. Please share this invitation and the bidding requirements with all the young people in AA in your area! Don’t hesitate to Contact Us with any questions! Please consider bidding for TCYPAA. The young people of AA in Tennessee need you!
Yours in service, TCYPAA Advisory Council
Your host committee is committed to making your experience at TCYPAA 2020 both safe and enjoyable. To do that though, we need your help. Our Big Book says on page 83 “The spiritual life is not a theory. We have to live it”; on page 84 “Love and tolerance of others is our code.”; and on page 85 “Every day is a day when we must carry the vision of God’s will into all of our activities”. It would seem that our own literature encourages us to love and care for each other. It’s not only the right thing to do, it’s part of our sobriety.
Throughout this conference please help us to take care of each other. Offer help to those in need. If you feel bad about a situation, consider your own safety. If there is an emergency, take the right steps and notify one of the conference organizers. Call 911 if needed. While we are doing everything that we can as a committee, it takes us all to care for us all. Please keep yourself safe and help those around you. If we all do this, we can all have an amazing experience together!
