PUBLIC RELATIONS COMMITTEE

ASKS FOR YOUR HELP

As we start the New Year we will attempt all year to reach those compulsive gamblers who are still suffering to share our experience, strength, and hope with them. We will reach out to treatment centers, media outlets, community centers, community speaking opportunities…

We ask for your help in identifying outreach opportunities. We are looking to form a team of speakers who would fill in for opportunities we find to speak to both the recovery community and our communities at-large.

Contact us at publicrelations@gachicago.org if you have ideas for outreach and/or want to be on a list of members who can help us reach those who are still suffering. We are asking you because who better to teach us than those who have been on the other side.
