About Us

The Hilton Head Mid-Winter Conference began in 1980. It was the idea of four couples on the island. They believed that the AA and Al-Anon community on Hilton Head Island needed a convention that would allow members in the low country as well as surrounding areas to come together for a weekend of inspiration and fun.  Their goal was to provide conference attendees with speakers who were gifted in their ability to carry the message of recovery.

We are indebted to the eight men and women who had the courage and the vision to begin this journey. The following persons serve on this year's Conference Committee as board members and committee chairs (more names will appear as positions are assigned):


“Founded in 1980 to bring to the Hilton Head Island Alcoholics Anonymous & Al-Anon community speakers gifted in their ability to carry the message of recovery.”
