Cooperation with the Professional Community

Our members are anonymous, our program of recovery is not.

Cooperation with the Professional Community is responsible for suggesting policies and recommending activities that will help carry the message to the still-suffering alcoholic through sharing information about the AA program with professional groups and individuals who have contact with alcoholics. This furthers a mutual understanding and cooperation between AA and professionals. It also increases awareness of members and outside groups and organizations on ways of cooperating with others without affiliating.

Specifically, in District 9, our CPC committee informs professionals and future professionals about AA – what we are, where we are, what we can do, and what we cannot do. Professionals that may have contact with active alcoholics include (but are not limited to) judges, health care professionals, law enforcement, and counselors. We can provide meeting lists and access to literature that may help the professional in their endeavor to help the alcoholic.

Any professional as well as the general public is welcome to reach out to our CPC Committee to request more information.

We suggest including the District 9 DCM on all emails to ensure information is properly coordinated.
