There are several opportunities for service at the Central Office: 12 Step Committee Chair, Cooperation with the Professional Community (CPC), and Public Information (PI).

The 12 step committee’s primary function is to respond to requests for help made through the 24 hour hotline, email or any other means.

The CPC and PI positions are complementary to their counterparts at the district and area level.  They coordinate requests and refer them to the appropriate general service trusted servants where available.

The following are descriptions of these two committees as taken from the AA World Services publication “AA Guidelines: Cooperation with the Professional Community”

P.l.—The purpose of P.l. service work is to provide accurate A.A. information to the public when requested. P.l. committees visit schools, businesses and community meetings for this purpose. They also serve as resources for our friends in the local media, emphasizing our Traditions of anonymity, singleness of purpose and nonaffiliation, as well as offering A.A. public service announce- ments to radio and television stations.

C.P.C.—Members of these committees provide information about A.A. to those who have contact with alcoholics through their profes- sion. This group includes health care professionals, educators, members of the clergy, lawyers, social workers, union leaders, and industrial managers, government officials, as well as those working in the field of alcoholism. Information is provided about where we are, what we are, what we can do, and what we cannot do.


If you would like to be of service to the local AA community and to the smooth operation of the Central Office then boy do we have the position for you.  The Board Secretary is similar to a group secretary, aiding in the management of documents, procedures, maintaining the minutes and more.

If you would like to learn more or to stand for the position come to the next Central Office Committee meeting on Tuesday, May 13 at 6:30 PM.


Central Office is in need of volunteers to work Monday afternoons.  Also, we are in need of a Tuesday coordinator.  A coordinator assumes responsibility staffing 10 am to 5 pm on Tuesdays and working with the Volunteer Coordinator.  Please spread the word and have anyone interested contact Susan L. at or call Central Office at 801-484-7871.  


The Ad-Hoc Committee to explore the feasibility of forming service committees at the Salt Lake Central Office invites you to discuss our needs regarding the AA services available to the Salt Lake area AA community.
