Stepping Up Project to co-host training session for alcohol licensees

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- A free information and training session conducted by the Iowa Alcoholic Beverages Division (IABD) and co-hosted by the Stepping Up Project will be offered Tuesday, Aug. 5, in Buchanan Auditorium of the Pappajohn Business Administration Building on the campus of the University of Iowa. The training session is being offered at two times, 11 a.m. and 7:30 p.m.

All Johnson County holders of licenses to sell alcoholic beverages are invited to attend one of the 90-minute training sessions, which will include a video produced by the IABD and will provide information on bar check procedures, fake IDs, and recent changes in Iowa laws regarding the sale of alcohol. There will also be time for questions.

The sessions are being co-hosted by the Stepping Up Project, a University of Iowa and Iowa City/Coralville community coalition which is interested in finding ways to reduce excessive drinking among college students and to reduce the negative effects that excessive alcohol consumption has on others.
