Should bring 500 visitors to state
FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 23, 2017) — Kentucky has been selected by the Conference of State Liquor Administrators (NCSLA) to host the group’s 2019 annual conference. Kentucky beat Kansas to host the conference, which is expected to bring approximately 500 visitors to the state for four days.
“Kentucky ABC looks forward to welcoming our fellow state regulators from across the country to Kentucky for four days of meetings, training, and sightseeing,” said Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC) Commissioner Christine Trout. “The annual conference agenda always covers diverse and timely issues, and we look forward to placing Kentucky at the center of the discussion.”
Kentucky is already slated to host the NCSLA Northern-Southern Regional Conference later this year in Louisville. Approximately 250 regulators from neighboring states will attend the conference, which will focus on Kentucky’s alcoholic beverage producers and the state’s Red Tape Reduction Initiative.
Trout will serve as the vice chair of the NCSLA Southern Region during the conference and will be responsible for assisting the chair with overseeing regional activities during the next year. She was elected to the position by NCSLA members during the Denver meeting and will become chair in 2018.
NCSLA’s primary goal is to create and maintain effective systems of alcohol regulation for the public interest. The group promotes effective alcohol policies in local communities and educates members on regulatory compliance.
