GDVI ABM Gathering Registration


The Greater Delaware Valley Intergroup (GDVI) of S.L.A.A. invites delegates, observers, and trusted servants/volunteers to join us at the Daylesford Abbey in Paoli, PA (45 minutes outside of Philadelphia) during the 2024 Virtual Annual Business Conference/Meeting (ABC/M) in August 2024 in Co-Working/Co-Service space where we can all collaborate.

When we first learned that the ABM would be held virtually this year, we were both excited the expense of attending would be less, but we were also disappointed we would miss in-person fellowship and support. GDVI’s delegates initially considered gathering together in one place. In evaluating locations, we noted that the venue where many of our recovery retreats have been held for more than a decade would be an excellent location. We then expanded the vision to include space for other ABM attendees from neighboring intergroups and areas. 

Our team has worked to put together a space that will support recovery, service, and connection. Here are the details:

Five Days / Four Nights – $725 includes indicated meals, technology, and overnight lodging, including bedroom, linens and towels, desk, chair, and sink. Shower rooms, lavatories, kitchenette, and lounges are located in each hallway. 


      • Wednesday, August 7th – Travel Day / Arrival – Includes Dinner 

      • Thursday, August 8th – ABM Begins – Includes Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner

      • Friday, August 9th – ABM Day 2 – Includes Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner

      • Saturday, August 10th – ABM Day 3 – Includes Breakfast/Lunch/Dinner

      • Sunday, August 11th – Fellowship Day / Activities – Includes Breakfast & Lunch 



        • You must register for the ABM on your own. GDVI is only providing coworking space and technology. Registration does not include ABM Delegate or Observer Registration Fees, to be paid to Fellowship Wide Services.

        • All ABM Delegates and Observers must bring a Zoom-ready Laptop Computer with Webcam and a working USB port to comply with ABM requirements. Rental laptops may be available for an additional fee. (inquire before registering)

        • Approximately $85 of the registration fee is allocated to technology expenses. This includes a USB headset with mute button, mic and headphone access; wired network adapter for high-speed Internet and cable, internet bandwidth fee (facility), on-site technical support (S.L.A.A. member), snacks, soft drinks, water, attendee name badge and lanyard, folder with printed ABM agenda (does not include supplemental materials). All technology items may be returned to GDVI or retained by the participant.

      Optional Cost Adjustments


          • If someone departs on Saturday night after the ABM concludes, deduct $150

          • If staying in a double occupancy room (two twin beds), deduct $50 per person per night. You may specify who you would like to be paired with or request to be matched with another attendee by completing the roommate match section.

          • To add on a printed copy of all ABM supplemental materials – add $35 – it will be mailed to you directly from LuluPress. (must order by 7/1/2024)
