Scholarships 2017

Scholarship requests will be taken at the Registration Table at the Western Roundup Living Sober (WRLS) Conference:  August 4 - 6, 2017 at the Marines' Memorial Club & Hotel.

The WRLS Scholarship Fund is fully provided by member donations.  WRLS offers partial (or full) scholarships to those who need them, while funds are available.  Paying what you can ensures that we continue to carry the message to as many people as possible.

Western Roundup Living Sober is self-supporting; no outside group money is used to pay for this special event.  The cost of the event is paid through fundraising, donations, and registration fees.

Thank you for your continued support of Living Sober !

 


*** One of the most common misconceptions about these gatherings is that they are AA meetings, and since there are no dues or fees for AA membership, there should be no fees to attend.
 
Conferences and conventions are special events, not regular meetings. They require months of planning, preparation, and money to present. Since most events are held in hotels or convention centers, there is a charge for use of the facilities. Other expenses include travel and lodging for the speakers, printing of flyers and schedules, postage, and supplies. A large event requires a substantial amount of money.
 
This convention is self-supporting. No group monies are used to pay for this event, nor do we accept outside contributions or donations of any kind. No baskets are passed. The cost of the event is paid through the registration fees. The ideal goal for any such event is to break even, therefore the registration fee is modest compared to a weekend's worth of entertainment elsewhere. Attendance is voluntary and as responsible AA members, we pay our own way.
