In 1983, members of Group 266 "Saturday Night Live" formed a committee to sponsor an AA conference. As a result, the first Fall Classic Conference was held in the fall of 1984.
Each year since, a group generally known as the Fall Classic Committee has held a conference in St. Louis on Labor Day weekend. During the year, a variety of fundraisers are held to help pay for the conference. For many in the recovering community, the Fall Classic has become an annual part of their lives.
The only requirements for membership in the Fall Classic Committee are a desire to stop drinking and participation in the Committee activities. There are no dues or fees or membership certificates. The only compensation for being on the committee is sobriety. Over the years, the Fall Classic has provided many with a chance to get involved. Whether you are a newcomer or an old-timer, you are welcome to join the committee.
