21st Amendment Ratified, Prohibition Ended


December 5, 2017 marks 84 years since the United States ratified the 21st Amendment to the U.S. Constitution and paved the way for the modern three-tier beverage alcohol system.

Throughout the year, WSWA hosts a number of events and meetings for wholesaler members, including the January Executive Committee Meeting, Fly-In and "Toast to Congress," CLD Meeting, Fall Membership Meeting, and State Policy Conference.

2018 Winter State Policy Conference

December 12, 2018

The Winter State Policy Conference provides an opportunity for wholesaler state association leaders to discuss the political and legal issues facing wholesalers across the country. By comparing notes and discussing strategy, the meeting increases the effectiveness of state associations and allows wholesalers to speak with a unified voice. The WSWA staff use this as an opportunity to receive input from state associations leaders and the implementation of national legislative and legal goals.
