Cooperation with the Professional Community
Cooperation with the Professional Community (C.P.C.)
Cooperation with the Professional Community (C.P.C.) is AA’s official contact with members of the Professional Community.
Professionals include: Health Care Professionals; Mental Health Professionals; Social Workers; Human Resources Professionals; Legal Professionals; Corrections Professionals; Treatment Center Staff; Educators; Members of the Clergy; Police Officers.
A.A.’s local committees for Cooperation with the Professional Community (C.P.C.) provide information about Alcoholics Anonymous to members of the community whose profession may bring them in regular contact with anyone who may suffer from the disease of alcoholism. We offer information through a variety of methods, and seek to establish simple and effective ways to work with professionals with a policy of “cooperation, but not affiliation.”
Members of C.P.C. committees inform professionals and future professionals about A.A.
The Cooperation with the Professional Community (C.P.C.) committee can bring the A.A. message to professionals and to students at professional schools, 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.
Members of 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. They attempt to establish better communication between A.A.s and professionals and to find simple, effective ways of cooperating without affiliating.
The mission of Alcoholics Anonymous in Area 30 Archives is to permanently document the work of Area 30 and its Districts, to make the history of the organization accessible to A.A. members and other researchers, and to provide a context for understanding Alcoholics Anonymous’ progression, principles and traditions.
