At yesterday’s Illinois Liquor Control Commission board meeting, the director said that in addition to discussing federal trade practice rules and some issues concerning the ongoing investigations that the entities are engaging in, the upcoming June 13 learning sessions hosted by the TTB in Chicago regarding trade practices would be jointly hosted by the ILCC and the TTB. This means that in addition to providing some good information about federal trade practices, there will also be some insight provided by the ILCC staff about the newly proposed “of value” standards (submitted to the commentary and implementation process through JCAR yesterday) and other ILCC trade practice rules. The link below will allow you to register for one of the two sessions. There’s an afternoon one and a morning one. I encourage anyone interested or curious about these issues to sign up and attend.
