GCYPAA is an annual A.A. conference hosted by a group of recovering alcoholics who are trying to carry the message of recovery, unity and service to those who suffer from alcoholism. The conference is a weekend-long celebration of recovery with the purpose of bringing unity amongst young alcoholics in the state of Georgia and surrounding areas.
Generally, the Conference takes place at a hotel in Georgia and features large speaker meetings, entertainment, workshops, AA meetings, and other sober activities that celebrate our recovery from alcoholism.
Each year, the Conference is hosted by a “Host Committee,” representing a particular city or area in Georgia. At the Conference, the next group to host GCYPAA is selected. The new Host Committee then begins to plan the next conference. In this way, the Conference travels the state of Georgia.
Generally, one begins their GCYPAA service by bidding to host the Conference in their area. A group of recovering alcoholics working together to bring the Conference to their area is a “Bid Committee.” At the Conference, a Bid Committee is selected to host the Conference the following year, after presenting in front of the GCYPAA “Advisory Council.” The Advisory Council is comprised of members of previous Host Committees who have been elected to oversee and assist with future GCYPAA events.
