I’d like to start by thanking all who attended the general meeting in Tucson. It was a pleasure to meet all of our Tucson licensees. Special thanks to John Cocca, the Director of the DLLC, and Don Isaacson, our Lobbyist, for their informative and insightful reports, and taking the time to answer questions from all those who attended.
“Around The State” with David Delos, ALBA President
While a successful 2017 legislative session has just ended, the 2018 session has just begun. I would encourage our members to come forward with ideas or problems that you are facing in our industry as now is the time to start developing these for the next legislative session. The next few months will provide great opportunities to network with other interests on those ideas, conduct research, and begin the task of advocacy of those particular subjects.
The earlier you bring forward an issue, the more likelihood there is of success. I would encourage you to identify any possible issues you would like to develop over the interim for possible consideration in 2018.
I am proud of accomplishments this year and through the strength of our Lobbyists Don Isaacson and Cheyenne Walsh, ALBA continues to be the only association protecting retailers and our legal right to sell alcohol.
As always, please feel free to contact Dave Delos, President of ALBA at firstname.lastname@example.org., with your questions, concerns, and comments at any time. or Don Isaacson and Cheyenne Walsh, lobbyists for ALBA, on any legislative matter.
REMEMBER: A LONE LIQUOR RETAILER CAN BECOME AN EASY TARGET, HUNDREDS OF US UNITED BECOME A FORTRESS.
