Cooperation with the Professional Community



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.
