March 1st-3rd, 2019
As many of you are aware, portions of eastern North Carolina’s coastal areas, including Atlantic Beach, were impacted by hurricanes Florence and Michael, causing damage to local buildings and infrastructure that has regrettably interrupted on-going business operations. Among the businesses impacted was the host facility selected for the DEICCANA IX convention in January 2019, the DoubleTree by Hilton. In October, the convention committee was made aware of unverified claims that the convention had been cancelled. Immediately, the committee began working with the host facility to assess the validity of these claims, which concluded that the host facility:
- will be undergoing repairs, thus being closed in January 2019.
- proactively cancelled hotel reservations and intends to notify those impacted.
- provided the committee with alternative dates and will honor the originally quoted rates.
The committee is pleased to announce that the DEICCANA IX annual convention, “The Road Home”, has been rescheduled for March 1st through March 3rd, 2019 at the DoubleTree by Hilton in Atlantic Beach, NC. The committee will be working tirelessly to quickly communicate updates to all members, homegroups, areas and regions. The committee humbly requests all NA members help support the convention by sharing this prepared statement and directing all members to the convention website at for the latest information and updated fliers. Please email your questions and concerns to or ask a convention committee member.
The committee extends its sincere thanks to everyone for their continued patience and support and looks forward to celebrating the miracle of recovery with another exciting convention in March 2019.
