Public Information (PI)

The primary purpose of PI, like all of Alcoholics Anonymous, is to carry the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers. The PI/CPC committee conveys AA information to the general public through activities such as giving talks and distributing literature at schools, community meetings, schools and businesses. It serves as a resource for local media, emphasizing AA Traditions of anonymity, singleness of purpose and non-affiliation. It also offers AA public service announcements to print media, radio and television stations.

A PI Workbook consists of service material compiled by AA World Services from the practical experience of AA members; it reflects guidance given through the Twelve Traditions and the General Service Conference IU.S./Canada): CLICK HERE

PI Guidelines, published by the General Service Office, compiles the shared experience of A.A. members; they also reflect guidance given through the Twelve Traditions and the General Service Conference (U.S. and Canada). In keeping with our Tradition of Autonomy, except in matters affecting other groups or A.A. as a whole, most decisions are made by the group conscience of the members involved. The purpose of these Guidelines is to assist in reaching an informed group conscience: CLICK HERE
