Public Information Subcommittee

Public Information normally meets bi-monthly on the second Tuesday of the Month.

PI Chair Ross H. (541) 996-6462


Public information has many things that we can use help on, from distributing schedules and posters, to coordinating phone lines, speaking to individuals outside the fellowship about what we do and more.

If you are interested in service or just becoming more a Part of Narcotics Anonymous, Public Information is looking for people to attend a subcommittee meeting and take on small service commitments (with no set clean time requirements).  If you are interested, please contact Megan I at the number above.

The purpose of Public Information work in Narcotics Anonymous is to inform the public that NA exists and offers recovery from the disease of addiction. A Public Information Committee helps to ensure that information about our fellowship is accurate and is available to the public

Public Information and the NA Member

Every member of NA has a role in helping us carry the message to the still-suffering addict. Much of the goodwill that exists between NA and the community is based on the relationships that we maintain as NA members. We can improve these relationships for our fellowship by taking care to treat others with courtesy and respect. This is especially important when we represent the fellowship to professionals and members of other organizations who may spread their good or bad impressions of us to others. We need to project a positive image of NA so that these individuals feel comfortable directing addicts seeking recovery to our meetings

When we participate in a public information event, we accept responsibility for our behavior. If we are rude, use profanity, or show a lack of respect for a facility or for other organizations, we bring into question the effectiveness of our recovery program.

We can also be seen as members of Narcotics Anonymous when we wear an NA T-shirt in public, stand around outside a group meeting, or attend an NA convention or service conference. As a fellowship, we have no control over the behavior of individual NA members. As members, however, keeping our spiritual principles in mind, we can share our concerns about our public image with other members. We can communicate to them that a bad image of Narcotics Anonymous could easily keep the message of recovery from reaching the addict who still suffers.
