Back Together, Better Than Ever!
Come to the Forum Friday, June 2nd, 1 pm – 4 pm

You won’t want to miss a minute of this year’s Forum as we welcome back the global fellowship we have built in recent years. We will root ourselves in the wise traditions of our rich past while we turn to the new opportunities for service that technological advances offer us. 

Six programs are planned, and you’ll be able to make two selections:

  • How technology allows us to bridge cultures with understanding and awareness

  • The exciting possibilities now open to Service Groups to build a fellowship and carry the FA message into our areas

  • Public Information Sessions in a virtual age: a workshop for PI Reps and Local Service Groups

  • How to concretely support newcomers through their first 90 days to help them gain and maintain abstinence

  • The history of the 90-day requirement from those who lived it and why it remains central to who we are today

  • The FA Traditions that keep us unified and faithful to our purpose

Be sure you register for the Forum as well as the Conference. There is no additional charge for the Forum.

DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel

50 Ferncroft Road, Danvers, MA 01923

The FA rate for hotel rooms at the convention hotel is $155 per night. Hotel reservations are not included in your FA Convention reservation. You must book your room separately.

The FA rate is applicable until our room block sells out and applies to the following dates: June 1 through June 5.

Rooms are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please book only one room. Booking multiple rooms lowers the number of available rooms allotted for FA members and prevents them from taking advantage of the reduced FA rate.

Mini-refrigerators are available for rental on a first-come, first-serve basis. A limited number of larger refrigerators will be available in the hotel Hospitality Suite throughout the weekend.



Please cancel your room reservation at the DoubleTree by Hilton or Comfort Inn directly with the hotel — the FA Office does not handle room cancellations. 

Ride and Lodging Sharing List 

FA has created an online Ride and Lodging Sharing List where members can indicate if they need or can offer to share a ride or provide or share lodging. To submit a request, change your submission, or to view member responses, click on Ride and Lodging Sharing List.
