Alcoholics Anonymous | District 10 AA | Johnson County
District 10 Committees
District 10 group chroniclers meet the first Thursday of every month at 6 pm before the district meeting.
The purpose of a corrections committee is to coordinate the work of individual A.A. members and groups who are interested in carrying our message of recovery to incarcerated alcoholics. District 10 currently takes AA meetings to the Johnson County Adult Detention Center, the Johnson County Adult Residential Center & the Adolescent Center for Treatment. If you are interested in getting certified to take meetings to any of these facilities, please send an email to email@example.com
Cooperation with the Professional Community
Alcoholics Anonymous has many A.A. members and service committees who are available to provide professionals with information about Alcoholics Anonymous. A.A. has a long history of cooperating but not affiliating with outside organizations and being available to provide A.A. meetings or information about A.A. upon request. A.A. communicates with professionals such as doctors or other health care professionals, members of the clergy, law enforcement or court officials, educators, social workers, alcoholism counsellors, therapists, or others who deal with problem drinkers in the course of their work.
CPC Stated Purpose
Members of CPC 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. To connect with the CPC representative for District10 please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Cooperation with the Professional Community Workbook
Members of the Grapevine committee strive to inform AA's and the general public about the existence of the AA Grapevine Magazine and LaVina the Spanish version.
Members of the Literature committee strive to inform and distribute AA approved literature throughout the district. For information on what literature is available and purchasing said literature please access the following link.
Accessibilities Committees assist A.A. members who have a variety of challenges in accessing the A.A. message in A.A. meetings, Twelve Step work and other A.A. service. The pamphlet Serving All Alcoholics provides an overview of opportunities to serve on this committee.

While A.A. is not affiliated with any form of alcoholism treatment, A.A. Treatment committees are essential in carrying the A.A. message into treatment settings where the suffering alcoholic may be introduced to A.A. for the first time. According to the A.A. 2014 Membership Survey, 74% of our members cited treatment or counseling as an important part of their journey to A.A. The local Bridging the Gap program, or BTG, connects the new member being discharged from a facility to A.A. in their community. Clients can request contacts through the A.A. Temporary Contact/Bridging the Gap Request form. A.A. members can serve as A.A. Temporary Contact/Bridging the Gap Volunteers.
Like all of A.A., the primary purpose of members involved with Public Information service is to carry the A.A. message to the alcoholic who still suffers. Working together, members of local Public Information committees convey A.A. information to the general public through activities such as giving A.A. information talks at schools and civic organization meetings, providing A.A. literature to schools and offices, and insuring local media have accurate information and providing them with A.A. public service announcements.
