Future of PENNSCYPAA We are looking for your support to ensure the future of PENNSCYPAA as a statewide conference. It would be ideal to have cities and towns from all over Pennsylvania not only attending, but also bidding to host future conferences. We ask everyone to carry the message back to your home group, district, intergroup, sponsees, sponsors, and peers.
How do I bring PENNSCYPAA to my city? You must meet the bid suggestions. The PENNSCYPAA Advisory Council hosts a workshop providing information about how to make a bid. Bids are accepted each year at the conference for the following year and a determination is reached. Every year, the PENNSCYPAA Advisory Council – the custodian of the PENNSCYPAA experience, made up of members from previous host committees – decides “whose house is going to have the party” next time.
