As college students across North Carolina return to school for the Fall semester, the Governor's Substance Abuse and Underage Drinking Prevention and Treatment Task Force, along with Law Enforcement agencies, the ABC Commission, DMV License and Theft Bureau, local ABC Boards, and Prevention Coalitions, are increasing their focus on preventing underage drinking.  

A crucial part of this intensified focus includes providing training seminars for ABC (beer, wine, and mixed beverage) on-premise and off-premise permit holders in the Chapel Hill, NC area.

  • Other Laws and Regulations
  • If there are any specific topics you would like clarification on, please send them to or (919)779-0700 prior to the event and they will be addressed during the seminar.
The purpose of these seminars is to help ABC retailers be better prepared to reduce underage drinking. 

North Carolina Alcohol Law Enforcement (ALE) and local law enforcement departments may intensify enforcement efforts in Chapel Hill to ensure that businesses are fully complying with the laws and regulations, specifically those which prohibit underage people from purchasing, possessing, or consuming alcoholic beverages.
