Like all of A.A., the primary purpose of members involved with public information (PI) 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.
The Local PI Committee is supported by Ottawa District 54, District 58 and District 62. This includes funding and operations.
The following are examples of the Committee’s work:
- Health Fairs - We participate by handing out Literature, meeting lists, and answering questions at local Health Fair as required.
- Secondary Schools - PIC provides AA publications including Big Books, Living Sober, The Twelve and Twelve, and "In our Own Words" to school libraries and student service departments
Public Information and Cooperation with the Professional Communtity meet on the third Monday of each month at the Bronson Centre (Intergroup Office) from 6:30 pm. AA visitors are welcome. Please contact the local Public Information Committee for more information.
