Your San Diego Spring Round Up Committee
Welcome to the 47th annual San Diego Spring Round Up, 2024.
Our Theme this year is: Our theme this year is: Attitude of Gratitude
I am honored to serve as your Chairman this year. I personally began my service to the San Diego Spring Round Up 11 years ago. It has been an amazing experience, very rewarding and a vital part of my recovery. We have a full planning committee of over 120 people. These volunteers give their time and efforts to be of service to your recovery as well as their own as we carry the message of hope and a design for living that works. It is a committee that I am proud to be a part of!
This year’s theme is “Attitude of Gratitude”. I believe that a truly grateful alcoholic will not drink. Today, I live a life of gratitude, thanks to the program of Alcoholics Anonymous. I hope & pray that every one you & us find and live daily with an attitude of gratitude. Grateful for a new life, freedom from addiction, true friendships, meaningful purpose, a personal connection with a Higher Power and the opportunity to continually grow as a person in everything that this life brings. A life beyond our wildest dreams.
Thank you for the opportunity as I humbly serve as the 2024 Chairman of this great convention. I’m excited to see all of you this year and know that we will all be blessed as we trudge this road of happy destiny together. Please bring a newcomer along with you to experience the powerful fellowship and fun of this Easter weekend.

Leading up to the mid-1970's, there were two prominent conventions in southern California. The Southern California Convention that was started in 1952. And the Palm Springs Round Up, that was started in 1960.
Both of these events were very popular and well attended. The convention agendas included breakfast, lunch and banquet dinners with great speakers, plus entertainment and sporting events.
The combination of enthusiasm created by these events and the fact that AA was growing very fast during the1970's, caused some AA's in San Diego to think about and work toward starting their own event.
After a couple years of coordinating and planning meetings, the San Diego Spring Round Up (SDSRU) kicked off in 1978. And, from its very first year, this event has been a positive influence on those in attendance and has generated enough revenue to cover expenses, maintain a prudent reserve and make 7th Tradition contributions to various AA service entities.
At this writing, forty years later, it seems fair to say that the SDSRU has achieved it's purpose, as stated in the excerpt of the original Policies shown below:
PURPOSE: TO CARRY THE MESSAGE
It is an established fact that those who attend and take an active part in Alcoholics Anonymous Round Ups, such as this one, have a more positive attitude in their solution of the problem of alcoholism and are aided in acquiring the knowledge needed to arrest this devastating disease. In the true spirit of Alcoholics Anonymous, we, the first San Diego Round Up Committee, do hereby establish the following guidelines. In addition, we will henceforth be governed by the Twelve Traditions of Alcoholics Anonymous.
