Public Information/Cooperation with the Professional Community (PI/CPC)


The Public Information Committee is A.A.'s Official Contact with Members of the Public Community.

What We Do

A.A. Public Information has one ultimate goal, and it is the same as that of every A.A. group and every type of service work: To carry the message to the alcoholic who still suffers. But public information tries to reach the alcoholic indirectly, as well as directly, in two ways:

  1. By informing the general public about the A.A. program
  2. By informing "the third person" whose work is or may be involved with the active alcoholic

Why We Do It

Much of the Public has not had the opportunity to find out how the A.A. Program works. There are a great many misconceptions about A.A. in the public eye. Unless we inform the public, many practicing alcoholics may never find us. The PI committee is prepared to meet with any group of individuals that would like information about what A.A. is and what it is not.

How We Do It

  • Presentations
  • Event booths
  • "The Public" Can Include:

  • This type of service work does not require much time, and due to its nature, very often it can be done at your convenience.  To find out more, please contact picpc@aasf.org
