From the desk of the Executive Director - Cathy Berg
Spring forward! Another legislative session has come and gone and is now behind us. However, it is never further from our minds, as there are always issues that you as a member/business owner are affected by whether personally as a business owner or that we are all affected by on a local or state level.
Therefore, it is important that we hear from you with any issues so that we can continue to work for you in this highly regulated industry. We had a busy session with 15 different bills that affected our industry that our lobbyist monitored and worked on throughout the session. In this issue, you will see a list of those bills and their outcome. Please feel free to contact our office with any issues, as it is never too early to be planning for next year’s session.
The summer months will soon approaching and many of you are probably already thinking about hiring your summer help. Please contact our office if you have any employees that need to be TAM certified. As noted previously, we can also conduct classes at your establishment if you have 12 or more employees needing to be certified.
Check our website at: www.sdliquorandgaming.com for current TAM classes we are holding. This is the time to schedule those classes. There is also the option of having one of your own employees become a TAM instructor who can conduct classes on their own for your employees once certified or there are also online classes available. Please contact our office for TAM class information and what options are available to you and your staff at #800-721-1789.
We look forward to working with you in the coming year and welcome your input at any time.
