The women of Arizona are thrilled to host the 54th International Women’s Conference. We welcome you to Phoenix and encourage you to take advantage of all the activities the conference and the Valley of the Sun have offer.
IWC MISSION STATEMENT
The International Women’s Conference is the bridge to a better understanding of the Alcoholics Anonymous philosophy and way of life because of our special needs in sobriety as women. We as women members of Alcoholic Anonymous are survivors. We have found a way to obtain meaning, depth and responsibility in our lives. This came about out of desire, decision, determination and spiritual guidance. An elevated sense of belonging that is brought about by the special services and a special need provided by our Women’s Conference is our goal.
This conference is self-supporting through the money paid for by registration fees, banquet tickets, and donations. AA funds are not used to pay for this event. Conferences and conventions are special events and require money, as was months of planning and preparation. Expenses include contracted costs for the use of meeting rooms, convention center facilities, preparation of food and beverages, printing for registration forms, flyers, program schedules postage, supplies and many other costs. The registration fee and banquet fees are kept as low as possible to meet our financial goal of breaking even. Our contractual commitments to the hotel require a guaranteed number hotel rooms and banquet sales. To achieve this, we must meet our banquet and room-night commitments.
