Give freely of what you find and join us. We shall be with you in the Fellowship of the Spirit, and you will surely meet some of us as you trudge the Road of Happy Destiny. May God Bless you and keep you—until then.

The Fellowship of the Spirit Conference has its roots in a small community of recovered Alcoholics and Al-Anons who live along the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains.
In 1992, through informal discussions and gatherings, a community took shape around a vision of carrying the basic message of Alcoholics Anonymous to families and individuals affected by the disease of alcoholism.
So began a long journey of becoming more connected with God and with each other. Every year the conference grows larger as more families get involved. We have seen both newcomers and old timers transformed by making personal commitments to the conference and to carrying the basic message.
Best of all, every year brings a new team of volunteers together, whose “blood, sweat and tears” make the conference possible. Every year, new personalities and new vision fill the community as we join together with a great sense of alignment and purpose.
The purpose of The Fellowship of the Spirit Board of Directors is to ensure the fiscal health of the conference. Some of these activities include maintaining a prudent reserve, purchasing liability insurance, filing taxes, negotiating hotel contracts, and following all laws pertaining to non-profit organizations. In keeping with our Mission Statement, the board also ensures consistency of message and experience, for FOTS attendees, from year to year.
The Board is made up of several past conference chairs, two Al-Anon positions, two rotating members, that are elected at the Conscience of the Conference, and three elected officers: Treasurer, Secretary, and Archivist.
The Board of Directors meets in February, May, September, and Saturday morning at the Conference. All meetings are open to interested individuals. For meeting dates and times, please email the Board President. For a copy of the minutes from any Board meeting, please email the Board Secretary. For a copy of any Board financial reports, please email the Board Treasurer
