Tradition Five: Each group has but one primary purpose – to carry its message to the compulsive overeater who still suffers.
Public Information and Professional Outreach Committee Chair Duties: The intergroup chair shall appoint a committee chair from those IRs present who meet IR qualifications. A board member or any OA member present meeting IR qualifications may be appointed to chair a standing or special committee with approval of the majority of the members present and voting.
PI: The Public Information component focuses on reaching out to the still-suffering compulsive eater who may not know OA exists. This are activities and material that are directed to the compulsive eater who still suffers.
PO: The Professional Outreach seeks innovative ways to offer OA as a resource to professionals who may wish to refer patients/clients to OA if they deem it beneficial to them.
PIPO targets those sectors that we would wish to carry the message of OA Recovery through a wide variety of mediums and platforms.
