Employment Liaison Officer assumes responsibility for interfacing with all sectors of commerce and industry, developing and maintaining contact lists. The focus of the task is closely linked with that of the Public Information Rep, so that close coordination between these two posts is essential. It is also helpful to be in contact with the Prison and Health Reps with the aim of forming a committee of fellow AAs willing to pass the message. The committee can then coordinate with employers by informing them about AA, what we are, what we can and cannot do. We let them know we are available to help in any way we can when they call on us.

The role of the Probation Liaison Officer is to link with the Probation Service in a purposeful way, to clearly explain what AA can do (and what it can not) to stimulate local Probation Officers to encourage probationers who have a drink problem to give AA a try. The Probation Liaison Officer will work with counterparts across the Region [London Region (North)] in joint efforts and meet them at the quarterly meeting of all Probation LOs in the region. It may be necessary to have contact with the Prison Service and the Courts and with neighbouring Intergroups (Westway and Kensington & Fulham). The Probation Liaison Officer is expected to attend the monthly Intergroup meetings on the third Wednesday of each month (odd months is the GSR Intergroup and even months is the Service Committee Intergroup) keeping GRSs and Chelsea Intergroup members informed of developments in the Probation Service. The Probation Liaison Officer will administer and maintain the Chit[i] system for participating groups within Chelsea Intergroup. The Probation LO should have two years sobriety be familiar with the Steps & Traditions, the AA Service and Structure Handbooks for Great Britain and AA literature in general.

See Chapter 9 of The AA Service Handbook for Great Britain for more detail. 

The role of the Public Information Officer is firstly, to inform the wider public community and agencies, in their catchment area of the help available to anyone who thinks they might have a problem with alcohol. This can be achieved through literature, requested PI information talks and working with other officers who deal with Health or Education. Normally a PI officer will have a team of members willing to help distribute information, or be part of a requested talk. Requests can come from GSO, or the local community including Police, Schools and Health agencies. The P.I. officer can also benefit from attending an intergroup conference and exchanging ideas with the other officers. The PI Officer should have an established period of continuous sobriety, ideally not less than two years, and possess some experience with Intergroup. A familiarisation with the AA Service Handbook for Great Britain, the Twelve Steps and Twelve Traditions, and AA literature in general. See Guidelines No. 7 and Section 17 of the AA Service Handbook for Great Britain for more detail.
