ORGANIZATIONAL COMMITTEE: To formulate bylaws, guidelines and structures by which this organization can operate, day-to-day, at Conferences and elsewhere, maintaining the World Service Manual by adding Conference approved changes that should be distributed to the fellowship in the first quarter of the year following the Conference.
HOSPITALS AND INSTITUTIONS COMMITTEE: To provide assistance and guidance to individual
Fellowships as well as service Groups that initiate hospital and institutional activity.
COMMON WELFARE COMMITTEE: The WSC Common Welfare Committee reviews, edits, and submits literature to the WSC for approval, through the 12 point literature approval process. This process may be found in the Committee’s guidelines. It is our function to facilitate the expression of our fellowship’s honesty, openness and willingness through the writing of material for distribution.
The literature we deal with is of the following types:
A. The proposed item will expand the inventory of materials adopted by the Fellowship and aids membership in an understanding and application of the Twelve Steps of Pills Anonymous and the Twelve Traditions of Pills Anonymous.
B. The proposed item carries the message of P.A. to the addict who still suffers.
C. The proposed item supplies valuable information to the professional fields with whom addicts would most likely come in contact.
D. The proposed item clarifies the nature of addiction to the general public and fellowship.
CONVENTION COMMITTEE: The purpose of the World Service Convention is to promote enthusiasm and unity within the Fellowship of Pills Anonymous and financially support World Service efforts to carry the message. The purpose of the WSC Convention Committee is to:
Provide a World Service Convention for members of Pills Anonymous; Create uniform bidding guidelines;
Assist the convention (host) city in all aspects of resources and convention information; Provide guidance with budgeting; and Create World Service Convention guidelines, structures, and policies.
PUBLIC INFORMATION COMMITTEE: In all public relations, P.A.’s sole objective is to help the still suffering addict. Always mindful of the importance of personal anonymity, we believe this can be done by making known to the addict, and to those who may be interested in their problem, our own experience as
individuals and as a Fellowship in learning to live without pills.
We believe that our experience should be made available freely to all who express sincere interest.
We believe further that all efforts in this field should always reflect our gratitude for the gift of sobriety and our awareness that many outside P.A. are equally concerned with the serious problem of addiction.
The Public Information Conference Committee develops, initiates, and plans the means of communication to the public, which is presented to the Conference for Fellowship approval.
