Community Collaboration Specialist, John Byrom will be presenting a workshop at CADCA's 22nd National Leadership Forum in Washington D.C. The workshop will give an overview of policies that have worked to reduce problems caused by alcohol sales, drug
paraphernalia, and items being sold that promote drug use (t-shirts, jewelry, banners and flags) at community events. It wil also cover how to gather data on events, and how to approach their state alcohol board, and the event promoter. Byrom plans to share the assessment tools, Responsible Beverage Service (RBS) training curriculum, and examples of Special Event Policy language for use in their communities to address problems identified at community events.
