Law & Policy Conference 2020

The Center for Alcohol Policy is pleased to announce our 13th Annual Alcohol Law and Policy Conference will move virtual for 2020. The conference will have a series of seminars scheduled to take place virtually over the course of four consecutive Wednesdays in the month of September. In an effort to accommodate varied schedules and time zones, all sessions will be made available on-demand to conference registrants after the live seminars conclude; however, we encourage you to join live to participate in the Q&A portion of all sessions. 

The 12th Annual Alcohol Law and Policy Conference in Boston set records in terms of attendance and participation from regulators, public health advocates, alcohol industry stakeholders and many more. We are excited to deliver thought-provoking and useful resources for all who attend. 

The Center is a “go to” resource for up-to-date information on the important impacts of alcohol regulation, and its annual Alcohol Law and Policy Conference highlights its important role in drawing out conversations of divergent interests. We hope that you make plans to attend what is sure to be an exceptional event.
