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

What Is PI/CPC?

Public Information and Cooperation with the Professional Community (PI/CPC) serves two purposes:

  • provides accurate AA information to the public when requested through sharing resources and offering live and virtual presentations from members of AA
  • provides information about AA to those who have contact with alcoholics through their profession including:
    • health care professionals‚ educators‚ clergy‚ law enforcement‚ court officials and those working in the field of alcoholism

The Valley Service Center PI/CPC is responsible for carrying the message to the local public at large and creating greater understanding of the AA program.

We accomplish this by communicating with TriValley community groups, using media and holding Public Information meetings.

We seek to share information about AA with those professionals and individuals who come into contact and work with alcoholics.

Our efforts are guided by a desire to further mutual understanding between AA and professionals. We seek only to increase awareness of AA without affiliating.

OUR PRIMARY PURPOSE

CARRY THE MESSAGE OF ALCOHOLICS ANONYMOUS TO OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY BY SHARING INFORMATION ABOUT AA TO THE PUBLIC AND TO THE PROFESSIONAL COMMUNITY

  • Help us distribute ZOOM Meeting information to our community
  • Learn how to present Public Information to Non-Alcoholics
  • Create community contacts and schedule A.A. presentations
  • Set priorities for the committee
  • Be a liaison for PI/CPC to your home group


Cooperation with the Professional Community (CPC)

Our Public Information/ Cooperation with the Professional Community (PI/ CPC) committee can provide a virtual or in-person presentation.

During the presentation:

  • We provide information about Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.)
    • to know what A.A. is
    • what A.A. does
    • how to get in touch with A.A. 
  • We want EVERYONE to know about A.A. so that when they encounter an alcoholic, they will know how to refer that alcoholic to A.A. Otherwise, ignorance of A.A. may lead to more alcoholic deaths!

According to the A.A. 2014 Membership Survey, 70% of our members were referred to A.A. by others (only 30% found their way into the rooms of A.A. by way of their own motivation).

“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.”

Members of the PI/CPC Committee carry the A.A. message by:

  • conveying information and establishing communication about A.A.
    • to the media
    • the general public
    • the professional community (as well as students in those professions).  
  • Our competence to speak about alcoholism is limited to A.A.’s 12 Step recovery program. We cooperate, but do no affiliate with outside organizations and causes.
