National Liquor Law Enforcement Association
34th Annual Conference
A New Decade of Alcohol Law Enforcement
Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa at the Convention Center
November 15-17, 2021
I would like to personally welcome each of you to the 2021 National Liquor Law Enforcement Association (NLLEA) Conference here in Montgomery, Alabama. It is an exciting time for our association as we continue to adapt to policy and legislative changes around the country. The pandemic has created unprecedented shifts and changes in the alcohol marketplace adding additional challenges for Alcohol Law Enforcement (ALE) and our organization is committed to bringing our membership the most relevant and up to date information available through our conferences, training forums and workgroups to ensure that NLLEA members are on the cutting edge.
The NLLEA is here to support ALE and Regulatory agencies in navigating their enforcement and regulatory responsibilities and challenges in the midst of this ever-changing and uncertain environment and will continue to monitor information and share it with our membership. We applaud our membership in facing these challenges head-on by thinking outside of the box through collaboration and implementation of real solutions.
We value the experience, knowledge and expertise that each state brings to the table in improving the standards and practices of liquor law enforcement and we greatly look forward to working with you and being of assistance in connecting you to other state alcohol law enforcement agencies.
I would like to thank my fellow board members; Todd Merlina, Vice President, Tom Kirby, Secretary/Treasurer, Israel Morrow, Sergeant-at-Arms, Greg Croft, Immediate Past President and Executive Director, Carrie Christofes, for their hard work throughout the year. I look forward to seeing everyone actively participate in continuously improving the organization by connecting with the expertise of our membership. You are the ones that have the vision, knowledge and experience to help us pave the way into the future. You are truly the greatest assets we have as an organization. I ask you to stay engaged and keep us proactive in shaping the future of liquor law enforcement.
I would like to thank the Alabama Law Enforcement Agency (ALEA) and the Alabama Alcoholic Beverage Control Board for being the host state of our 34th Annual Conference. Please enjoy your time safely in Montgomery, Alabama with your colleagues from across the country.
John Yeomans, President
