Most licensees will realise there are a number of important benefits to membership of a liquor accord (keeping up to date with developments from Police, Council, Liquor Licensing etc, enhanced business reputation, better perception by clientele, promotional and marketing opportunities etc etc).
Additionally, since the amendments to the Liquor Act on 1 January this year, accord groups have express statutory recognition and are a feature of the Risk-Assessed Management Plan. If a licensee is not a member, this may reflect negatively upon the premises if they are subjected to a compliance investigation.
The Minister for Tourism, Fair Trading, Liquor Licensing, Gaming & Racing, the Honourable Peter Lawlor MP will be the special guest along with all members of the VLA, representatives of the QLD State Government & the Brisbane City Council, sponsors and supporters of the VLA. We encourage all licensees in the Fortitude Valley precinct to attend the launch and show support for this important initiative.
The time and location are:
Monday 22 June 2009
2.30pm – 4pm
Judith Wright Centre of Contemporary Arts
420 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley
