*CANCELLED* 63rd Scottish National Convention

After much discussion and consideration of the present Covid-19 situation and current guidance and information from both the UK Government and Scottish Parliament, it is with much regret that the Committee has taken the decision to cancel The Scottish National Convention which was due to be held in Stirling 8 - 10th May, 2020.
This decision has not been taken lightly and was based first and foremost on the welfare of our members. As a committee we have worked hard the past year to ensure the continued success of this amazing Convention and, with the permission of the 5 sponsoring Scottish Regions, we will do so again over the months to come to continue the success of the Convention in 2021.
Neither Alcoholics Anonymous or the Scottish National Convention Committee can refund any payments made to Stirling Court Hotel by individuals and advise you contact the Hotel directly.

*CANCELED* The Welsh National Convention

It is with great regret that we, The Welsh National Convention Committee, have to announce that this years Convention will be
cancelled. We, like everyone else, have to follow Government guidelines on gatherings.
Next years Convention will take place on 4th - 6th June 2021. We can inform you that anyone who has paid a deposit for their room, or
indeed paid in full, then those bookings will be carried over to next year. If, however, you require a refund then you will have to contact
the hotel directly. (there is normally a small increase in cost each year so there may be a bit extra to pay for those that decide to carry
their bookings over to next year.
If you have booked hotels elsewhere in Llandrindod Wells then you have to liaise with them directly.
Like I said, this is a regrettable decision but one that had to be made.
Please stay safe and utilise the online meetings available as meetings
are suspended around the UK.
