Partnering with elected officials, law enforcement professionals, school administrators and educators, parent and student organizations, faith-based organizations, local media and businesses can help increase a Communities Talk event’s reach and impact. Partners can provide a wealth of support for an event, such as recruiting or obtaining event speakers, promoting the event, offering a venue, supplying volunteers, and donating door prizes and giveaways.
Confirmed webinar speaker include:
- Becky Carlson, Executive Director, Center for Prevention and Counseling, New Jersey
- Sally Linowski, Associate Dean of Students, Off Campus Student Life and Community Engagement, University of Massachusetts Amherst
- Allisyn Marks, Youth Commissioner, Placer County Youth Commission, Auburn, California
The webinar will provide community-based organizations and institutions of higher education with the opportunity to gather recommendations and ask questions of presenters.
Please feel free to share this event with your acquaintances and encourage them to register today.
This year the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) will sponsor its seventh round of Communities Talk: Town Hall Meetings to Prevent Underage Drinking. Since this initiative began in 2006, thousands of Communities Talk events held across the country have increased public awareness and supported the efforts of community-based organizations (CBOs) to prevent underage drinking. Most importantly, these meetings have helped mobilize community action in support of evidence-based prevention practices. For more information about Communities Talk Town Hall Events, visit SAMHSA’s Underage Drinking Prevention Education Initiatives’ website at http://www.stopalcoholabuse.gov/TownHallMeetings.
