C.P.C. NEWS CORNER
Your C.P.C. service committee can bring the A.A . message to professionals and to students at professional schools in our community, helping them to understand how and why A.A. works. A.A .has always valued friends in all professional fields. These associations have been mutually beneficial and completely in keeping with the A.A. Traditions.
Purpose of C.P.C.
“Our Twelfth Step – carrying the message- is the basic service that the A.A. Fellowship gives: this is our principal aim and the main reason for our existence. Therefore, A.A. is more than a set of principles; it is a society for alcoholics in action. We must carry the message, else we ourselves can wither and those who haven’t been given the truth may die.” The A.A. Service Manual, ” A.A.’s Legacy of Service” p. S1
Today, many local communities , areas, and regions consider C.P.C. an activity separate from public information, treatment, or correctional work. In some places, though, there is overlap. In our District 1 & 2, we plan to work with other committees, thus alleviating the overlap problem.
Members of our C.P. C. Committee inform professionals and future professionals about A.A.- what we are, where we are, what we can do, and what we cannot do. They attempt to establish better communication between A.A’s and professionals and to find simple, effective ways of cooperating without affiliating.
We still need interested members to enlarge this important committee, to carry our message to professionals; email and get active.
