Local vintners to partner with ABC to conduct LEAD training
Local members of the Sonoma Valley Vintners and Growers Alliance, SVVGA, are taking the lead in providing ABC training for local tasting room staff. They partnered with the ABC to conduct training specifically for SVVGA members on Wednesday, Nov. 30 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at The Lodge at Sonoma.
The Licensee Education on Alcohol & Drugs (LEAD) Program is a free, voluntary prevention and education program for retail licensees, their employees and applicants. The curriculum is designed for licensees, managers, and employees. There is no separate management curriculum. The program length is 3-1/2 hours.
The mission of the LEAD Program is to provide high quality, effective and educationally sound training on alcohol responsibility and the law to California retail licensees and their employees. It provides the licensee and applicant with practical information on serving alcoholic beverages safely, responsibly, and legally, and preventing illicit drug activity at the licensed establishment.
The ABC requires that there must be a minimum of 50 attendees. Those interested are urged to RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org.
