Fellowship of the Spirit Mid-Atlantic was started as the result of the experience of an A.A. member living in Richmond, Virginia, who attended the annual Colorado Fellowship of the Spirit Conference. FOTS is dedicated to carrying the message of A,A,, as set forth in the book Alcoholics Anonymous, to both alcoholics and to those who are either members of alcoholic families or those who are in emotional relationships with alcoholics.
The first FOTS Mid-Atlantic Conference was held in May 2005 in Natural Bridge, Virginia, with more than 200 people attending. The second FOTSMA conference, in June 2006, was also in Natural Bridge.
We moved to the Richmond, Virginia, area for the third FOTSMA conference, on Memorial Day weekend, We loved the venue, and held our fourth, fifth and sixth conferences at The Crossings.
The FOTSMA Conference went into hiatus for 2011, after putting on five great Memorial Day weekend events that were not fully self-supporting.
