How We Work

We are volunteers organized into three committees; General Planning, Steering Committee, and an Advisory Board.  Read more about each committee below to see how the Western Roundup Living Sober conference is created each year.

The spiritual principles of the Twelve Traditions, the Twelve Concepts and the Six General Warranties of Alcoholics Anonymous are the over-riding guidelines for Living Sober and assure that our leaders are trusted servants; they do not govern. 

General Planning Committee

All Living Sober volunteers, Subcommittee Co-Chairs and Subcommittee members  are the decision-making body and act as the group conscience of Living Sober.

We get stuff done! We meet at least monthly during the planning year, and as needed.

You can reach us at

Steering Committee

The Steering Committee has the responsibility to oversee daily operations during the planning year, conducts General Planning Committee meetings, assembles the yearly budget for the Conference, and acts as a liaison to all subcommittees.

You can reach us at

Advisory Board

The Advisory Board acts as the Board of Directors for all legal purposes. It is responsible for all legal and fiduciary matters, has final approval over the yearly budget of the Living Sober Conference and has specific authority to protect the Purpose and Intent of Western Roundup Living Sober of San Francisco.
