Stanislaus County PI/CPC Committee
Public Information and Cooperation with the Professional Community: Public Information (PI) provides information on the AA program to the general public, and to the media at large. Members may show an AA conference approved video, talk about the twelve steps and twelve traditions, discuss what the public might expect if they attend an AA meeting, or staff an AA information booth at health fairs and community festivals. PI also facilitates public service announcements through newspapers, radio, and TV. When members Cooperate with the Professional Community (CPC), they might provide doctors with AA literature, or appear at their professional conferences. When they help the professional community understand what our AA program is and what it accomplishes, the professionals can then help those still suffering from alcoholism–through education, counseling, treatment, and possible referral to us.
