Virtual International Women’s Conference – February 2021



The Language of the Heart will be spoken at the First Virtual International Women’s Conference ever held.  The women of Charlotte, North Carolina are excited to bring this Conference to our sisters in every part of the world, truly making our conference available for many women who were never able to attend in person.  The Language of the Heart that the sober women speak while attending the IWC will continue to be spoken every day, in every city in the world, and will continue to unite us in sisterhood and sobriety.

This is a Conference you don’t want to miss. Celebrate the gifts of sobriety and perform service in our wonderfully diverse fellowship.   See and hear dynamic speakers. Great panels and workshops led by some awesome women from around the world await you. Watch the play “Surrender Dorothy.” You could become a contestant in the game Dysfunctional Family Feud, or learn how to do the Myrtle Beach Shag Dance.  Souvenirs are available for sale and must be ordered by November 30.   Speaker talks may be purchased online from Sober Voices.

There is no registration fee; however, contributions to help pay for the 1st  Virtual 57th IWC are welcome. Visit the website to register.  See you in the Zoom Rooms!!

New GSO contributions portal

Dear A.A. friends, We are very pleased to announce the launch of a newly redesigned online contributions experience available to all groups and members in the United States and Canada on Wednesday, September 9, 2020.

This new redesign comes with significant improvements. Working in tandem with the team of experts assisting us with our webstore, we have created what we hope is an experience that is appealing and inviting to use for all contributors.

Our hope is to provide the most accessible and streamlined experience possible on all web-ready devices, including the ability to contribute without registering for an account and to receive instant email acknowledgments. For members who choose to register an account, both their contribution and webstore details will be available in one unified view.

We deeply thank you for your continued support and invite you to visit the new online contributions experience by visiting

With all best A.A. wishes and sincere gratitude,
