2023 Convention – White Plains NY October 13-15, 2023

Convention Program

The Convention Program offers a variety of workshops and OA meetings. There’s something for everyone!

Sign Up for Service!

“Any form of service — no matter how small — that helps reach a fellow sufferer adds to the quality of our own recovery.” (from OA’s Tools of Recovery)

  • We need your help for our convention to come together! Use Sign Up Genius to let us know what you are willing to help with at the convention, then come to the Service Sign In Table when you arrive. We are especially in need of service volunteers for Friday night!
  • Consider co-leading a session! Here is more information on what we are looking for. Sign up here to volunteer to lead a session.


There will be a Friday night buffet dinner and a Saturday night banquet. Meal ticket sales have closed. Here is the menu. Please see the Convention Program for hours.
