Center for Alcohol Policy Announces New Leadership in Alcohol Regulation Award

ALEXANDRIA, VA – The Center for Alcohol Policy (CAP) is now accepting nominations for a new Leadership in Alcohol Regulation Award to be presented at the CAP’s upcoming Alcohol Law Symposium October 23-25, 2013, at the Grand Hyatt in Washington, D.C.

The inaugural award is designed to recognize 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.

“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, CAP Advisory Council member and former Arizona alcohol regulator. “This award will highlight 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; has an ability to achieve desired results; and its ability to 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 or mailed as a hard copy 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 September 15, 2013, 5:30 p.m. EST. Nominations postmarked/emailed after this deadline will not be considered.

AWARD:  In addition to receiving public recognition and a commemorative plaque, award recipients may receive a complimentary registration and a speaking opportunity at a future Alcohol Law Symposium.
