ACA World Convention 2019
Welcome to AWC 2019 – The 4th world convention
Many children grow up in alcoholic or otherwise dysfunctional homes. This upbringing can negatively impact skills needed to lead a harmonious life with workable relationships as adults. Some adults continue their childhood traumas by stuffing their feelings, repeating scenarios, engage in negative self-talk, act out on traits, create drama, or become addicts themselves.
This year the world convention theme is Courage to Change. The ACA Convention provides a safe environment where Adult Children can meet like-minded Fellow Travellers, gain greater insight into their recovery, and help spread the ACA message to those who still suffer.
We welcome you to Malmoe! Come and be a part of our fellowship!
Last day for ordering food and beverage is Sunday April 14th. It is not possible to join the banquet/buffet or activity when you arrive. Eat lunch or buy coffee for the same reduced price when You are at the convention.
The fee for register is now 315 SEK. Sunday April 14 it will increase to 380 SEK. This is also the price for the walk-ins. When the facilities are full, we cannot let anyone else in due to regulations concerning fire etc.
