Join Us October 14-16, 2022 for the 2022 Illinois State AFG Convention!

An Outstanding Agenda, Great Speakers, Social Engagement & Fun Activities


We are looking forward to hosting you in Springfield, IL on October, 14-16, 2022. A few details while we wrap our end of planning/organizing this BIG EVENT!

The Wyndham Springfield City Center is holding a block of rooms for the IL State AFG Convention until September 22, 2022. After that date, any rooms remaining in our BLOCK will be released and reservations past this date will be accepted on a ‘space/rate availability basis.’ The number of rooms reserved also impacts us in our preparations for hosting the event there. If you KNOW you are coming, please book your as soon as possible to help the committee plan accordingly.

On Friday the 14th, the Registration Desk for the CONVENTION will be ready for you to sign in by 3 pm. (Room check-in for the hotel is at 4.) The program committee is planning on the first break-out meetings to start at 5 pm.

The Kick-Off Event on Friday will start at 7 pm. After the announcements, and welcome, we will introduce the two featured speakers for the evening, one from Al-Anon and one from AA. There will be additional meetings available after the Kick-Off Event.

On Saturday, the registration desk will open for the convention at 7 am, with meetings beginning at 8 am. We have individual meetings planned, a panel session, a workshop, as well as the traditional AA speaker session in the afternoon on Saturday. The evening will be filled with the banquet at 6 pm, raffle winners, countdowns, introduction of special guests followed by our featured Al-Anon speaker. Entertainment will follow the main speaker. You won’t want to miss THIS! YOU get to be the star!

We will wrap things up on Sunday, with a few meetings and our last, but not least, featured speaker, at 10 am.

Along with the meetings and entertainment spaces, don’t forget about the fundraising events! The basket raffles, the quilt raffle, and the literature ‘yard sale’ will be happening at the same time. There will also be an archive space for some historical information on the History of our program, and the people that came before us!

The CPC members have done a lot of work and had a lot of fun putting together a live, in-person Convention we think will leave you feeling fulfilled and knowing you are not alone in this journey to recovery. We hope to see you there! We are:
