Cooperation with the Professional Community

Seeks to create mutual understanding and cooperation between A.A. and the professional community. Makes general information about AA available to those in fields such as health care, education, law enforcement, and social work. Provides schedules, pamphlets, videos, etc., to professionals.

During this time when large public gatherings are not permitted, professionals may be wondering if A.A. is still meeting. The Area 31 CPC Committee created this note to send to professionals to let them know how to connect their clients with A.A. during this time. A.A. members are encouraged to send this note to professionals who may find benefit in it. This could be 12th step work that makes a difference in a drinker’s life.

If this type of service work is of interest to you, we encourage you to read the pamphlets How A.A. Members Cooperate with Professionals” and “Information on Alcoholics Anonymous”. We also invite you to attend the Area 31 CPC meetings held on the 2nd Tuesdays of each month. All A.A. members are welcome.


C.P.C. recorded presentation for professionals

The Area 31 C.P.C. committee developed a recorded presentation as a resource to reach professionals who work with alcoholics. This short, 10-minute recording provides an overview of the A.A. recovery program, how to access meetings, including virtual meetings, and other resources available specifically for professionals. We have made this presentation available on the Area 31 wesbite so members of the Fellowship can access it and share it with professionals in their life as they deem appropriate.

The C.P.C. committee is available to speak with any professional individually or as a group who has questions or wants to learn more about Alcoholics Anonymous. We will also attend an open meeting (virtually or in person as permitted) with a professional to observe a meeting first-hand. We can be reached at cpc@area31aa.org .
