Past Conventions

cocaine anonymous archive, Toronto, OntarioHistory of TORCA / SOCA Conventions

In 1997, it was suggested at the then Toronto Area of Cocaine Anonymous, that we have a conference in the fall. A motion was made, and passed. Kerry N. who made the original motion, was the first Chairperson of the TORCA committee.

Several meetings later, a one-day conference took place at the Deerpark Christ Church, on October 25, 1997. The day was a success. The Banquet, prepared by a friend of the fellowship, was excellent.

The keynote speaker that evening was Johnny S., one of the co-founding members of Cocaine Anonymous. Johnny is no longer with us, but with 21 Conventions later, the Convention Committees have worked diligently to make each convention a success. This archive is a history of their successes.
