Law Enforcement agencies, community coalitions, public health departments and civic groups are invited to submit workshop proposals for the 2013 Alcohol Policy Seminar. Workshops will be approximately 75 minutes (1 hour 15 minutes) in length. Topics must address some aspect of alcohol policy or alcohol related law enforcement. Examples are provided for clarity, proposals on the example topics are welcome.
The workshops are organized around three policy tracks:

• The financial burden alcohol places on Wisconsin
PowerPoint presentations are encouraged although not required. Panels should be limited to three participants. Workshop slides will be posted on the website after the conference.
A successful proposal will outline the specific topic area, provide background on local implementation, and include lessons learned from implementation or continuing operation, and offer suggestions for other communities following the outline below.
