Convention Details

Three Days of Fellowship

The SBAA Convention is self-supporting through the money paid for by registration fees, and donations. No AA funds are used to pay for this event. Conferences and conventions are special events and require money, as well as months of planning and preparation. Expenses include contracted costs for the use of convention center facilities, preparation of food and beverages, printing for registration forms, flyers, program schedules, postage, supplies and many other costs. The registration fee, which includes 3 meals, is kept as low as possible to meet our financial goal of breaking even.

Registration is Limited

Online Registration ends October 11th. Tickets at the event are $50.00. 

Scholarships

Please consider a donation for scholarships to help members
who want to attend but do not have the financial means.

Important Information

No refunds after October 11th. No pets - only service animals permitted. Badges must be worn at all times. Childcare is not provided.

Location Details

Veterans' Building

The Santa Barbara Alcoholics Anonymous Convention will be held at the Veterans’ Memorial Building in Santa Barbara, California. The “Vet’s Building” is located at 112 W Cabrillo Blvd, right on the beach. Registration, speaker meetings, and most other events will be at the “Vet’s Building.”

 

 

Parking in the beachfront area of Santa Barbara is limited and there is no onsite parking for this venue. Please consider this fact when planning your travel. There are three public parking lots within easy walking distance (parking fees usually apply).

The weekend of the convention is expected to be a busy one in Santa Barbara, so book your accommodations early! There are several hotels and motels within walking distance of the convention, and many more just a short drive away. Of course, you won’t want to miss the convention dinners, but for breakfast and other meals, there are numerous restaurants close by.
