MCYPAA Digital Archives
Enjoy a journey though the memories and history of the convention
A Brief Convention History
MCYPAA 1 was hosted in Detroit, MI in 1979. Michigan is lucky to have one of the longest-running YPAA (young people of AA) conventions in the country! MCYPAA has been held in 30 different cities over its 43 years and its location changes each year. The Detroit convention in 2019 was the first time the convention returned to its hometown in 20 years! Oakland County has hosted the convention the most times and the upper peninsula the least number of times.
We treasure the memories, smiles, and hope that is invoked by these archives and hope that you do too!
