ABD Symposium– It’s for you!

The Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division (ABD) announced that it will be hosting Symposium 21: Marking 80 Years of Alcohol Regulation in Iowa on October 2-3, 2013, in Des Moines to engage alcohol licensees, policy makers, industry professionals, local authorities and prevention experts in a discussion on the role of the three-tier regulatory framework in the alcohol marketplace.  Registration for Symposium 21 is now open!

Symposium 21 will provide an opportunity for a concentrated, in-depth analysis of the alcohol control state model and idea sharing to improve compliance with alcohol laws. Participants in the symposium will be invited to engage in a conversation with policy makers in order to enact policies that better protect public health and safety.

Symposium 21 is an excellent opportunity for people involved in the alcohol industry to gather and learn more about the three-tier system, to share ideas and best practices, and to talk about how we can keep Iowans safe. The sale and regulation of alcohol is a big responsibility – one that the staff and commissioners take very seriously,” said Commission Chairperson Celsi.
