PI/CPC Committee

Public Information and Cooperation with the Professional Community Committee, a Joint Committee of Area 70 (P.I./C.P.C.)


Public Information: This committee carries the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers and the general public. A.A. information is conveyed through presentations and various types of public media, such as radio, television, newspapers and the internet.


As our co-founder, Bill W., wrote:

Public Information takes many forms—the simple sign outside a meeting place that says “A.A. meeting tonight;” listing in local phone directories; distribution of A.A. literature; and radio and television shows using sophisticated media techniques. Whatever the form, it comes down to “one drunk carrying the message to another drunk,” whether through personal contact or through the use of third parties and the media.

 

Cooperation with the Professional Community: This committee provides information about A.A. to those who have contact with alcoholics through their profession. This group includes health care professionals, educators, clergy, lawyers, social workers, union leaders, industrial managers, and government officials, as well as those working in the field of alcoholism. Information is provided about where we are, what we are, what we can do, and what we cannot do.


C.P.C. committees inform professionals and future professionals about A.A.— what we are, where we are, what we can do, and what we cannot do. They at- tempt to establish better communication between A.A.s and professionals, and to find simple, effective ways of cooperating without affiliating.
