Like all of A.A., the primary purpose of members involved with public information service is to carry the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers. Working together, members of local Public Information committees convey A.A. information to the general public, including the media.
Bridging the Gap is the Temporary Contact Program, which is designed to help the alcoholic in an alcoholism treatment program make that transition.
Corrections: The A.A. Corrections Prerelease Contact Program connects the A.A. member being released from prison with Alcoholics Anonymous in their community.
Grapevine Representative: The representative makes sure that copies are available and displayed at meetings and lets everyone know what’s in the latest issue. Grapevine reps at the group, district, and area level play an important role in the AA service structure, helping to carry the message of AA to the alcoholic who still suffers.
PI and CPC: Public Information and Cooperation with the Professional Community
PI Volunteers provide presentations and material to any public organization who wishes to learn about Alcoholics Anonymous. This includes health fairs, high school presentations, drunk driving schools, stocking libraries etc.
CPC: Volunteers present to professionals whose jobs bring them in frequent contact with alcoholics and might benefit from a clear understanding of what AA does and what it does not do. This includes judges, doctors, nurses, parole and peace officers among others.
