Travel is once again on the horizon for the many delegates who will participate in World Service Business Conference 2023. This year, financial and Fellowship considerations have put it in OA’s best interest for everyone to gather face to face to accomplish our business agenda.

Theme and Schedule
“Concepts of Service: The Heart of Fellowship” is the theme of this year’s Conference, which will convene April 25–29 in Albuquerque, New Mexico USA. This year begins the newly restructured Conference schedule. Board meetings will take place April 24–25. Registration will open on Tuesday morning, April 25, and then Conference officially begins on Tuesday evening with the All About Conference session.
