It is intended that each PI Committee member bring back to their District and groups, information and ideas about Public Information. Some of the ways this is done is by setting up pamphlets at Information Booths, answering questions, and speaking at events to inform the general public about Alcoholics Anonymous.
Self education is important for those involved in PI service. All members of the Area 78 PI Committee are encouraged to download and read the Public Information Workbook, using it to be better informed on AA best practices in regards to Public Information issues.
The Public Information (PI) Committee is responsible for the following tasks:
- Encourage districts, groups, and members to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous; and to provide support in building Public Information awareness in the community.
- Respond to questions pertaining to anonymity; and to queries about how to find and contact AA.
- Communicate with the membership and public-at-large via website e-mail, responding to questions or requests for assistance.
- Cooperate with Central Offices and local service committees within Area 78.
- Education of committee members about what PI pamphlets are available, and ensure that the principle of anonymity is understood prior to interactions with the public.
