Welcome to the 2014 MAWS Conference
Los Angeles, CA — May 23-26, 2014
The planning has begun! This year is the Silver Anniversary for the conference and THAT is a great reason to get excited. This conference is vital to the health and success of MA, and it needs support. Think about what your life would be like if you hadn't found this fellowship. Now think about the time and effort you have dedicated to MA.
I chose to volunteer to be Conference Chair to express my gratitude to all of people who have supported me, and to the entire MA fellowship. The generosity and love I have received has made my life more rich, meaningful, and hopeful and I want to do everything I can to reciprocate. If you feel ready to give back in a deeply meaningful way, please contact me.
The twenty-fifth annual Marijuana Anonymous World Service Conference is hosted by District 7 and will be held over Memorial Day weekend at the beautiful Doheny Campus of Mount St. Mary's College in Los Angeles. Directions to the venue and a Campus Map are available. All of the information you will need will be available on this site as soon as it becomes available.
Marcy E., Conference Chair
Registration deadline is Friday, May 9, 2014. Payment deadline is Thursday, May 15, 2013. Because of school requirements, no registration money can be refunded after May 15, 2014.
Each year prior to the MAWS Conference, every MA group is asked to review the Agenda containing the action items Members have submitted for consideration. Please read them, consider them, discuss them and arrive at a group conscience. Group Service Representatives will then carry their group's conscience to the District Service Committee where further deliberation takes place. The DSC's group conscience is then carried to the MAWS Conference by the district's duly elected delegates.
Your participation in the process is an important part of carrying the message to the marijuana addict who still suffers.
Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, we tried to carry this message to marijuana addicts and to practice these principles in all our affairs.
Making a commitment to service work helps us stay clean and sober, and to "keep coming back." It gives us the opportunity to practice loving unselfishness and benefits our own recovery, as well as the recovery of every member in our group.
The MAWS Conference provides many opportunities for service both before and during the Conference. Regardless of how much time you have, there is undoubtedly a way for you to contribute.
