CHICAGO—The Illinois Liquor Control Commission (ILCC), in conjunction with the Southwest Conference of Mayors and Illinois Secretary of State’s Office, will conduct an education and training seminar for all liquor license holders in the southwest Chicago suburbs on Tuesday, July 15, 2:00-4:00 p.m. at the Orland Park Civic Center, 14750 South Ravinia Avenue.
Licensees and their staff from 22 towns have been invited to attend the training. There will be a discussion on state and local laws regarding alcohol sales and service. Each licensee will receive brochures, posters, and signage that send a message to minors that they will not be served alcohol, and patrons will not be over served in their establishments.
The ILCC conducts education and training seminars to explain the state laws regarding sales to minors, how to acquire servers training for employees, dram shop laws, and how to prepare for a compliance check. Additionally, the Secretary of State’s Office will be on hand to conduct the Operation Straight ID program.
As the state regulatory agency ensuring that liquor licensees comply with the provisions of the Illinois Liquor Control Act, the Liquor Commission provides industry education programs which focus on enforcement practices, interpretations of Illinois liquor control laws, reduction programs on illegal sales of alcoholic beverages to minors, and licensed training on responsible server and seller practices. In addition, the ILCC is also designated as the lead agency in developing a strategy for reducing the availability and delivery of tobacco products to minors.
