District Committees

Cooperation with the Professional Community (C.P.C.)

Members of 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 attempt to establish better communication between A.A.s and professionals, and to find simple, effective ways of cooperating without affiliating.

Corrections

The Corrections committee is to coordinate the work of individual A.A. members and groups who are interested in carrying our message of recovery to incarcerated alcoholics. Bringing meetings and literature into facilities, raising awareness of the Corrections Correspondence Service (C.C.S.) among "inside" and "outside" A.A. members, and helping inmates transition to a local A.A. Community through pre-release contacts are just some of the activities corrections committees support.

Public Information (P.I.)

The purpose of the PI committee is to carry the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers. The committee conveys A.A. information to the general public through activities such as giving A.A. information talks at schools and civic organizations, providing A.A. literature to schools and civic organization meetings, providing A.A. literature to schools and offices, and ensuring local media have accurate information and providing them with A.A. public service announcements.

Literature

The focus of the Literature committee is to assure that A.A. literature is available for A.A. groups, service meetings and other A.A. events. Through displays, supplies of A.A. catalogs and order forms, and A.A. literature workshops these committees help A.A. members carry the A.A. message through our literature.

Treatment Facilities

While A.A. is not affiliated with any form of alcoholism treatment, the A.A. Treatment committee is essential in carrying the A.A. message into treatment settings where the suffering alcoholic may be introduced to A.A. for the first time. The local Bridging the Gap program, or BTG, connects the new member being discharged from a facility to A.A. in their community. Clients can request contacts through the A.A. Temporary Contact/Bridging the Gap Request form. A.A. members can serve as A.A. Temporary Contact/Bridging the Gap Volunteers.
