Cooperation with Professionals

What is the Cooperation with the Professional Community Committee?

Alcoholics Anonymous (A.A.) cooperates with professionals who may come into contact with alcoholics through its Cooperation with the Professional Community (C.P.C.) Committee. C.P.C. committees inform professionals and future professionals about A.A.— what we are, where we are, what we can do, and what we cannot do. Professionals that may come into contact with alcoholics include:

  • Attorneys
  • Clergy
  • Counselors
  • Educators
  • Judges
  • Healthcare Workers
  • Police Officers

These professionals may come into contact with alcoholics that may not otherwise find our program. Therefore, C.P.C. work is important 12th Step Work. C.P.C. opportunities at Westside Central Office (WCO) are open to all members of A.A. C.P.C. activities at WCO include:

  • Provide basic information on A.A. to professionals.
  • Deliver A.A. literature to professionals.
  • Give presentations to professionals on what A.A. is (and what A.A. is not).
  • Give presentations to clients of professionals on what A.A. is (and what A.A. is not).
  • Take a professional to an A.A. meeting.
  • Provide A.A. information booths at professional trade shows/conferences.
