The presentation at CADCA's 22nd National Leadership Forum in Washington D.C. was a success, about 50 people very interested attended as they asked a lot of questions.
The workshop gave 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. Attendees learned how to gather data on events, and how to approach their state alcohol board, and the event promoter. They also gained access to assessment tools,
the 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.
The Special Event Policy and mandatory RBS training are strategies coalitions can use foster family friendly community events and reduce problems related to alcohol and other drugs. Below you'll find the all the resources provided and powerpoint presentation.
