A warm welcome to this year’s Convention: 

We came to believe

We are excited to welcome you all to the 16th Annual Primary Purpose International Convention in Oslo, Norway.

In 2006 a small group of A.A. members organized a speaker’s evening in Oslo.  It was the very beginning of what is now a big, annual A.A. event in Norway, which over the years has drawn hundreds of participants from around the country – and international guests from all over the world. Some of the most renowned international A.A. speakers have guested the convention.

A.A. Preamble
Alcoholics Anonymous is a fellowship of men and women who share their experience, strength and hope with each other so that they may solve their common problem and help others to recover from alcoholism. The only requirement for membership is a desire to stop drinking. There are no dues or fees for A.A. membership; we are self-supporting through our own contributions. A.A. is not allied with any sect, denomination, politics, organization, or institution; does not wish to engage in any controversy, neither endorses nor opposes any causes. Our primary purpose is to stay sober and help other alcoholics to achieve sobriety.
