Hop on over to the Committees page to learn about the services our committees provide to the Rogue Valley.
District 16 has a number of committees that serve the Rouge Valley so that we can better fulfill our primary purpose to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous and help other alcoholics achieve sobriety. If you would like to participate in serving the A.A. community, or are interested in learning more about service opportunities, please contact us.
Here are our committees and a little bit about what they do…
Gathers information and shared experience from the General Service Office (GSO), Areas, Districts, and A.A. Groups on ways to carry the message of A.A. to the still-suffering alcoholic or current members with access/special needs and to communicate that information to the groups, districts, and service committees.
Collects, preserves and shares the rich and meaningful heritage of our fellowship. The Archives Committee receives, classifies and indexes all relevant material, including, but not limited to, administrative files, records, correspondence, literary works and artifacts considered to have importance to Alcoholics Anonymous.
Cooperation with the Professional Community/Public Information (CPC/PI)
CPC and PI function within one committee.
Cooperation with the Professional Community (CPC):
Provides information about A.A. to those who have contact with alcoholics through their profession. This group includes, among others, doctors, clergy, judges social workers and law enforcement. Information is provided about where we are, what we are, what we can and cannot do.
Public Information (PI):
Carries the A.A. message to the still-suffering alcoholic by informing the general public — media, schools, industry, etc. — about what the program has to offer. This is done through public service announcements, visits to schools and other organizations.
Correctional Facilities (CF)
Facilitates A.A. meetings inside the Jackson County correctional facilities. This is done by organizing outside A.A. members to attend inside meetings on a regular basis.
Acts as an advocate for the Grapevine/La Viña at the district and group level, keeping the groups aware and informed about using the magazine as a recovery tool.
Provides a printed list of pertinent information regarding the meetings in District 16 to be made available to Groups, Jackson County Central Office and the District Committee.
Provides the means of carrying the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the alcoholic who still suffers when they reach out for help through the A.A. hotline listed in the phone book. The District works in cooperation with the Jackson County Central Office to carry out this responsibility.
Treatment Facilities (TF)
Coordinates the work of individual A.A. members and groups who carry the message to alcoholics in treatment facilities, and works to clarify what A.A. can and cannot do, within the Traditions, to help alcoholics in treatment.
Manages and maintains the District 16 website. The purpose of the website is to assist the groups of the District to carry the message of Alcoholics Anonymous to the still-suffering alcoholic, facilitate communication among GSRs, DCMs, District Committee members and A.A. members, and to improve an understanding of the workings of the District in order to encourage participation in service work.
