Frequently Asked Questions
EACYPAA stands for the Eastern Area Convention of Young People of Alcoholics Anonymous (EACYPAA).
It's an annual conference, and it's always held somewhere on the East Coast (from Canada to Florida, between the Mississippi and the Atlantic).
Basically, thousands of young people gather in a hotel for a weekend. There are meetings and A.A. workshops, but there are also tons of cools events.
Previous EACYPAAs have included things like: karaoke night, drag & variety show. dub trap room, all-night pool parties, sober olympics, and more.
What is a bid committee?
Each year, different cities "bid" for EACYPAA. A bid is a package that explains why the convention should come to our city. The bid package also includes information that proves we're legit (everything from hotel/accommodations quotes to committee bylaws)

Am I too old?
No one is too young or too old for sobriety. While many of us are under the age of 35 (or got sober before the age of 35), we welcome support from anyone and everyone!
As the third tradition states, "the only requirement for membership is the desire to stay sober".
