If your business is located in Worcester  County, you can join MSLBA through your local affiliate, the Worcester County Licensed Beverage Association (WCLBA)WCLBA represents alcohol beverage license retailers which includes taverns, restaurants, package liquor stores, hotels, bowling alleys and fraternal clubs.  When you join us, your dues include membership in our state affiliate,  the Maryland State Licensed Beverage Association (MSLBA) and our national affiliate, the American Beverage Licensees (ABL).

OUR PURPOSE:

WCLBA is a non-profit trade organization, formed to protect and to preserve the interests of Worcester County alcohol beverage retailers.

LEGISLATIVE:

WCLBA monitors the issuance of new licenses and transferred licenses in Worcester County by our local liquor board.  Each year, while the legislature is in session in Annapolis, we actively review proposed legislation and represent our members on the MSLBA Legislative Committee, which meets weekly during the session.

Additionally, WCLBA advocacy on behalf of our licensees includes elimination of the Worcester County Dispensary system and blocking attempts of the casino conglomerates to enter Maryland and monopolize the hospitality industry. 

WCLBA offers an annual Underage Identification seminar, free to members and their employees.  Those attending are educated on the need to check ID, how to check ID and the possible fines and penalties for alcohol beverage sales to minors.  WCLBA has been working with the Ocean City Police Department on their "Reducing Alcohol Availabilty to Minors Project (RAAM)".  During the MSLBA Convention in October, 1998, a presentation was made by the Ocean City Police Department to attendees.
