Cooperation with the Professional Community (CPC) Committee

Who We Are

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.

A.A. is considered by many professionals to be a valuable resource for alcoholics who want help.  When there is a good working relationship between A.A. members in the community and professionals who come in contact with alcoholics, the afflicted alcoholic is the winner.  He or she gets the help needed from both.

We are not in competition with these professionals; we have our separate functions. A.A. is not in the business of education, research, medicine, counseling, treatment, prevention, or funding. We simply have a message to carry about a program of recovery for alcoholics.

If you are a professional looking for any information on Alcoholics Anonymous please contact us at

A.A. Guidelines from General Service Office (GSO) for CPC Committee

A.A. Guidelines are compiled from the shared experience of A.A. members in various service areas. They also reflect guidance given through the Twelve Traditions and the General Service Conference (U.S. and Canada). The purpose of these Guidelines is to assist in reaching an informed group conscience.
