Check out some of the highlights from last year's conference!

Each year, the Legislative Conference provides distributors with the opportunity to hear from industry leaders and to educate members of Congress about the importance of effective state-based alcohol regulation, the role of independent beer distributors and the regulatory, economic and commercial value that distributors deliver in their communities.
This video takes a look at why it's so important to bring beer distribution employees to Washington, D.C., to meet their members of Congress and learn about the importance of alcohol regulation, especially first-time attendees.
