Center for Alcohol Policy Conference to be Held in Chicago on August 30 and 31

I am looking forward to attending the 14th annual Center for Alcohol Policy’s Law and Policy Conference to be held at the Hyatt Centric hotel in Chicago on August 30 and 31.   It will be good to talk about the dormant Commerce Clause with people in the same room again!

This year’s conference will feature a keynote address by Illinois Attorney General Kwame Raoul as well as interesting panels discussing the 21st Amendment Enforcement Act, COVID related alcohol law challenges and changes, the differences in the types of alcohol, and legislators and regulators discussing state legislative issues.  With the recent filing of a petition for writ of certiorari arising from an appeal of an 8th Circuit opinion to the Supreme Court, the panel on alcohol law litigation will be very timely.

The conference starts with a reception on August 29, goes all day the 30th and is over by noon on the 31st.  The Cubs visit the White Sox on the afternoon of the 29th so the Windy City rivalries will be in the air.  The winner of the Center’s Leadership in Alcohol Regulation award will be announced as well.  Registration ranges from $799 for private sector to $249 for government/nonprofit organization.

Hope to see you in Chicago!
