Speakers and Meetings

We strongly support your arranging content for your own group retreat meetings or your interaction with other groups. However, unless requested for our participation, we also understand the necessary independence and security of your individual group members without interference.

Please call our office at 218-910-0800 to register a convenient time for your group. It is our hope, you will be able to “lock-in” the same time year after year as other AA, NA and Alanon members have been accustomed to at Lakeplace for many years.
