About the East Coast Convention of NA



Thanks for your interest in the East Coast Convention for NA.

Due to COVID-19 the 2020 convention the 24th East Coast Convention of NA which had been scheduled for June 26-28 2020 at Washington College in Chestertown, MD had to be rescheduled.    Please stay tuned for more information about refunds and the new date.  We will post this information as soon as we have it. We are working on putting a system in place for  those situations where people need to request a refund instead of applying their registration fees to next year.  Please be patient with us during this unprecedented time.  🙂


You can now pre-register for the 2021 convention by clicking the pre-registration link.

The East Coast Convention of Narcotics Anonymous (ECCNA) functions with the support of the Host Area, and the ECCNA, Inc. Advisory Board (AB) to coordinate and conduct a convention that will bring our fellowship together in a celebration of recovery. Any Area along the east coast of the US can bring a bid to the bid meeting at the convention and potentially host the annual convention. The Area which wins the bid is announced during the main meeting and immediately begins forming their Host Committee for the following year’s ECCNA.

As written in our by-laws, the main objective of the ECCNA is to provide an annual East Coast Convention of Narcotics Anonymous (ECCNA) where addicts can meet and attend workshops to further their recovery.  All proceeds from our conventions are used to further our primary purpose by supplying Basic Texts to jails and prisons.

Historically the convention has been held at a school campus where housing and food is affordable so that the registration includes all costs including room and board. Between ECCNA 13 (1992) and ECCNA 14 (2010); the first ECCNA in this century, there was a long hiatus. Similar to the first ECCNA, the fourteenth ECCNA was attended by a small but very enthusiastic group. The attendees of ECCNA 14 fondly remember that event and because of their love for this convention, and our primary purpose, ECCNA was reborn.

Thank you to all who helped make East Coast Convention of NA 23 – June 21st through June 23rd, 2019 a tremendous success!!!  Please follow the links below to view the photos we have received from each of the conventions.
