On March 6th, 1999 ten members of Alcoholics Anonymous and two members of Al-Anon from different parts of the State of Maine met to discuss the possibility of starting a “Big Book Conference”.

The founding purpose was to have a weekend AA conference dedicated to sharing with others the cumulative experience of recovery from alcoholism through the 12 steps as outlined in the Big Book.

This has resulted in numerous Big Book groups from around New England coming together to join in harmonious action, sharing their common solution.

In 2016, the conference was adopted by NEFOTS, Inc.
“Abandon yourself to God as you understand God. Admit your faults to Him and to your fellows. Clear away the wreckage of your past. Give freely of what you find and join us. We shall be with you in the Fellowship of the Spirit, and you will surely meet some of us as you trudge the Road of Happy destiny."

May God bless you and keep you – until then.
