Public Information (PI)

Public Information (General)

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. — Reprinted from, with permission of A.A. World Services, Inc.


The purpose of A.A. public information is to carry the message to the alcoholic who still suffers.  This is achieved in the following three ways:

  • Through informing the general public about the A.A. program
  • Through reaching “the third person,” whose work is or may be involved with the active alcoholic.  (Sometimes this function is handled through the CPC Committee.)
  • By keeping the Fellowship well-informed, so that members and groups may carry the message more effectively. —Reprinted from the Area 47 Handbook
