For those who were not able to attend, recordings are now available for sale online from the Convention. The “Big Meetings” are the gatherings held of all in attendance (@60,000) in the Georgia Dome. Of note is the Old Timers’ Big Meeting on Saturday night, when a dozen old-timers, chosen by lot from those registered, share experience, strength and hope for 5 minutes each. (In order to quality as an ‘old-timer’ at International, one must have at least 50 years of sobriety.) The numerous workshops are normally a 3 speaker format, each sharing their experience for about 20 minutes on the topic at hand. All meetings are professionally recorded. Individual meetings are available by MP3 Download online or on audio CD. Two packages of recordings are also available; the three Big Meetings or the entire Convention. :
