AA HIstory Paris AA Convention 2024

AA in Paris

While American members of AA had met in Paris as early as 1949, the first known French-speaking group forms after the newspaper France Soir runs a series of articles on Alcoholics Anonymous by journalist Joseph Kessel in the summer of 1960.

In 1961, four people fellows formed the Groupe Quai d’Orsay, taking its name from the Quai at which the American Church is situated.

Today, we have 55 meetings that take place every week, both in-person and online, so you can connect to Paris wherever you may be.

There is a wide selection of Hotel accomodation available in the area.

Is the convention open to non-members of AA?

We happily welcome those with a desire to stop drinking of interest to learn more.

Due to strict limitations on the number of participants allowed by the venue, we suggest fellows consider not bringing additional family members or children outside of the programme for the day.

Should I leave my pet at home?

We kindly ask that you paws for thought if it’s essential to bring your four-legged friend to the event. It will be a lively day (in the best AA sense), and may be distracting for pets but also disrupt the calm space of the meetings. 

Will the convention be available online via Zoom?

The Convention is an in-person face to face event.

Where can I learn more about AA?
