Public Information Committee
The Public Information Committee is “responsible for creating greater understanding of/and preventing
misunderstandings of, the A.A. program through the public media, electronic media, P.I. meetings, and speaking to community groups.”
The Chair of the Public Information Committee shall be appointed by the Maine Area Chair following the
Election Assembly in October and serve a two-year term beginning in January of the following year.
The Public Information Committee shall include District and Group P.I. Chairs and any District or Group P.I. Committee members.
The Area P.I. Committee Chair and District Chairs shall be responsible for compiling lists of those willing to speak to community groups. The lists from each district shall be provided to the Area Chair who shall maintain and update the overall list which will be used to contact AA members. The policy of the P.I. Committee shall be that AA members will be asked to do speaking commitments m communities other than the one in which they reside, recognizing the importance of anonymity.
The Area P.I. Committee shall meet at Area Committee meetings, at the Spring and Fall Assemblies, and at the Pre-Conference and Post-Conference Forums. Since some districts have one person who serves as P.I./C.P.C. Chair, the P.I. and C.P.C. Committees shall meet as one committee at these Area 28 meetings.
See the General Service Office Guidelines for Public Information Committees.
There is also a Public Information Workbook.
In addition, the Area 28 Public Information committee has been charged with the responsibility of creating and maintaining a website for the Area.
