2018 MAWS Conference Registration Now Open

Welcome, Marijuana Anonymous World Services delegates.It is our pleasure to host the MAWS Conference, and District 2 wants to express our gratitude to all of you for donating and volunteering your time to help the addict who still suffers in this important way. We will do our best to make your stay comfortable, rewarding and fun as an attendee to the conference. 

Read on for details, or go straight to registration.

Where and When Will the MAWS Conference be Held?

May 25-28, 2018 (Memorial Day weekend); we estimate registration will open Friday at 4pm. 

Clark Kerr Campus of UC Berkeley, 2601 Warring Street, Berkeley, CA 94270


Airports: The nearest airport is Oakland Airport (OAK) and is strongly recommended. San Francisco International (SFO) is at least an hour away and traffic is horrendous. Seriously, it's terrible. And the San José Airport (SJC) is quite far and should only be used by people willing to provide their own ground transportation (that is, rent a car).

Public Transportation: The Bay Area Rapid Transit system (BART) has a station at both the Oakland and San Francisco airports (but you should fly into Oakland). The Conference Host Committee can pick attendees up from the Ashby BART station in Berkeley.

Parking:  Parking is available at the Clark Kerr Campus but permits are required and must be arranged in advance by contacting the Host Committee by May 1. Permits cost $18/day or $21 for overnight stays. The host commitee is looking into making offsite parking available.

Housing and Food

Attendees will stay in dormitory rooms at the Clark Kerr Campus. See below for housing costs.

The following meals will be provided by the Conference Host Committee:

  • Friday: dinner
  • Saturday, Sunday, Monday: breakfast and lunch (dinner is not provided)

We will do our best to accommodate dietary needs if you describe them at the time of registration. There will be a range of menu options.

The business of the conference begins on Saturday morning. 

Every attempt will be made to assign you to the committee you prefer, but please understand if your request (see below) cannot be accommodated. For an overview of each committee's responsibilities, please click here.
