OJJDP's 12th Annual National Leadership Conference, "Building Community Futures With Blueprints for Success," will be held August 1820, 2010, at the Anaheim Marriott Hotel in Anaheim, CA. The conference will address a variety of topics related to the prevention of underage drinking and the effective enforcement of underage drinking laws, with tracks to meet the needs of those who are new and those who are more advanced in the field. A special youth track also will be included. Plenary sessions, workshops, and experiential learning exercises will provide participants with real-life information, skills, and tools that can be used to enhance local efforts. Opportunities for extensive peer-to-peer interaction will also be available.
During the past 12 years, OJJDP's Enforcing Underage Drinking Laws (EUDL) program has successfully built partnerships with law enforcement, community organizations, and government officials to implement evidence-based strategies to reduce youth access to alcohol. The conference will highlight communities, programs, and other initiatives that have successfully implemented evidence-based strategies to reduce youth's access to alcohol.
Among those expected to attend are state EUDL coordinators, law enforcement officers, executives, military personnel, judges, prosecutors, probation officials, government officials, staff members of community-based organizations, youth, and other individuals concerned with underage drinking. Law enforcement awards and EUDL Success Story awards will be presented.
