Nominations Open for Fourth Annual Leadership in Alcohol Regulation Award

LeadershipAwardLogoALEXANDRIA, VA – The Center for Alcohol Policy is now accepting nominations for the Fourth Annual Leadership in Alcohol Regulation Award to be presented at the Center’s Alcohol Law and Policy Conference August 28 – 30, at the Renaissance Dallas Hotel in Dallas, Texas.

The award recognizes the work of alcohol regulators who oversee the alcohol industry and promote public safety. Any governmental agency or its employees working to promote and enforce alcohol laws and regulations are eligible for the award. A specific program that has achieved positive results or an individual within an agency going above and beyond the call of duty are examples of potential nominees.

In 2015, the Montana Department of Revenue’s Liquor Education Unit was honored with the Third Annual Leadership in Alcohol Regulation Award for its dedication to improving the state standard for liquor education and server training while involving all community stakeholders in its initiatives.

“There are many great initiatives in the states aimed at keeping the alcohol industry properly regulated and promoting public health and safety,” said Jerry Oliver, Center for Alcohol Policy Advisory Council member and former Arizona alcohol regulator. “This award highlights effective best practices that may serve as examples to alcohol regulators in other states.”

Nominations should provide information on how the nominee serves as an example to others in alcohol regulation. Consideration will be given to how the actions of this nominee are helpful to other agencies or employees, achieve desired results and engage or impact a broad coalition of stakeholders. Self-nominations are permitted, and letters of support are encouraged.

HOW TO NOMINATE: Nomination forms may be emailed to awards@centerforalcoholpolicy.org or mailed to: Center for Alcohol Policy; Attn: Leadership in Alcohol Regulation Award; 1101 King St., Suite 600-A; Alexandria, VA 22314.

DEADLINE: The deadline for nominations is July 22, 2016, 5:30 p.m. EDT. Nominations postmarked/emailed after this deadline will not be considered.

AWARD: The Leadership in Alcohol Regulation Award recipient will be honored during a special reception held in conjunction with the Center’s upcoming Alcohol Law and Policy Conference in Dallas, Texas. The award recipient also may be eligible to receive complimentary registration and a speaking opportunity at a future Alcohol Law and Policy Conference.
