Conference Information

With great pleasure, the NCSLA Executive Committee welcomes our members and guests to a long-awaited annual conference "homecoming" at the Peppermill Reno Resort in the Biggest Little City in the World! We look forward to being your hosts, and will be ably assisted by the extraordinary Peppermill staff and event helpers from all four Hawaii county liquor commissions.

We sincerely appreciate our members' continuing support of this organization during this challenging time. In turn, we will place the highest priority on attendee safety and confidence at our first in-person gathering in almost two years, and we are gratified that the Peppermill adheres to robust and comprehensive health/safety protocols. Please read about employee and guest safety measures here and in greater detail here, and see a video presentation here. We expect the Nevada health/safety protocols to evolve over the months leading up to the August event, and we will update all attendees by email and website notices at the earliest opportunity.

Business Meeting

Reconnect, Rethink, Redesign - The annual conference theme accentuates the organization's and industry’s resolutely positive outlook and the continuing need for resiliency in the future. While COVID-19 will continue to play a central role in this and future conferences, the business agenda gives equal time to many other issues of similar importance. The business program begins with a then-now analysis of topics surfaced in the seminal Towards Liquor Control, and segues to emergent issues pertaining to commercial, societal, legal, and ethical norms. To view the entire business agenda and a tentative list of alcohol beverage experts serving as presenters, please click on the links below.

Business Agenda | Presenter Biographies

Social Activities, Socially Distanced

This year, with our attendees’ health and safety being the highest priority, we are not planning the traditional off-premises excursion. Instead, all conference activities will be kept in the most glamorous "bubble" in Reno, where attendees will have ample opportunity to network – catch up – make merry – relax in the Peppermill’s AAA Four Diamond rated property. For those wanting to explore the Reno-Tahoe surrounds on your own, the registration materials will feature an easy way to access information and plan excursions using your smart device (see a preview below).

The banquet night’s event will be a grown-up version of the homecoming dance, with tunes from the 70’s-80’s-90’s, karaoke, award presentations, and installation of NCSLA’s new officers for the 2021-2022 year! Stay tuned for how attendees will participate in some of these activities ahead of the big dance, and extra credit to anyone who attends homecoming wearing era-appropriate attire!
