PI/CPC Committee

Public Information and Cooperation with the Professional Community


The District 9 Public Information/Cooperation with the Professional Community (PI/CPC) Committee communicates with professionals in the health care, law enforcement, treatment, corrections, human resources, counseling, sociology, ministry, education, communications and judicial systems. The committee cooperates, without affiliation, with those seeking to help those who may have a problem with alcohol. The Committee provides support and resources to A.A. members seeking to educate professionals with whom they come in contact and provides speakers at schools and civic groups. The committee also maintains a PI/CPC display for group, district and community functions. If you would like us to bring our display to your group anniversary or would like more information, please feel free to contact us.  Our Committee is open to all and we would love for you to join us.  

Information for Professionals

Suggestions for Public Information

Professionals who work with alcoholics share a common purpose with Alcoholics Anonymous: to help the alcoholic stop drinking and lead a healthy, productive life. We can serve as a source of personal experience with alcoholism as an ongoing support system for recovering alcoholics. Click here for more information.

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 home 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.” Click here for suggestions on sharing the message to the local public.
