Canyons Resort (Park City, UT)

2011 RR Forum
April 12-13, 2011. The Canyons Resort.

The 9th RRForum was held in Park City, Utah on April 12-13, 2011 at the Canyons Resort. The Utah Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control served as host and sponsor for the national meeting.

In 2011, the focus was upon community context:

  • What are the necessary components of a community-wide RR program?
  • What are the roles and potential contributions of RR stakeholders, public and private, local and state, in supporting community-based RR systems?

The theme of the 2011 meeting was suggested by an introduction to a Maine stakeholder by Johnnie Meehl, Director of Liquor Operations, Maine Dept. of Alcoholic Beverages and Lottery Operations, who wrote: “With budgets being as thin as ever, it is increasing important to join forces and utilize all available resources and I anticipate that this introduction will be mutually beneficial for all parties.” In 2011, public agencies and private organizations both face reductions in their budgets and restrictions upon their capacity to promote, or enforce, compliance with underage sales laws. Accordingly, the theme of this year’s conference is Leveraging Resources: non-traditional approaches to achieving RR in a time of fiscal austerity.
