Welcome note from the ORC 2020 Chair

My name is Roman from the Stepping Stones Discussion group in Toronto. It is such an honour and privilege to serve as the chair of this year’s conference. The theme for ORC 2020 is “If You Want What We Have”.

Chapter 5, How It Works, from the Big Book of Alcoholics Anonymous says:

“Our stories disclose in a general way what we used to be like, what happened, and what we are like now. If you have decided you want what we have and are willing to go to any lengths to get it – then you are ready to take certain steps.”

We read this, of course, at the beginning of almost every meeting. This year’s committee has been working hard to bring you some of the best speakers, panels and fellowship opportunities. You are sure to find inspiration through the many stories at this year’s conference.

As you probably know, we are back at the Sheraton Centre Hotel. Parking across the street at City Hall is only $8.00 a day (Saturdays and Sundays). The Toronto PATH system and TTC both lead directly to the hotel. You can find a map on the Hotel page.

Don’t forget to visit the Volunteer page and sign up for some service…everyone is welcome to be a part of the conference! The full program schedule will be available on the site as soon as we have it finalized.

Hope to see you all there,
Roman R., ORC 2020 Chair
