MEMBERS OF THE AUTHORITY TO ADDRESS COMBO PACK ADVISORY AT FEBRUARY 26, 2013 FULL BOARD MEETING
In November 1999, the Authority issued Bulletin #583, which provided guidance to the industry regarding the ability of suppliers and distributors to sell to retailers sealed pre-wrapped packages containing: (1) different kinds of scheduled alcoholic beverages; and (2) individual bottles of a scheduled alcoholic beverage and other merchandise. In light of inquiries from, and discussions with, suppliers and distributors regarding permissible conduct under Bulletin #583, the Authority is considering making changes to the guidance contained in Bulletin #583.
A proposed advisory to replace Bulletin #583 was discussed with industry representatives at a public meeting conducted by Chairman Rosen on January 17, 2013. A video recording of that meeting is available for viewing on the Authority’s website. After considering the comments made at that meeting, a revised draft of the proposed advisory has been prepared and will be submitted to the Members of the Authority at the February 27, 2013 Full Board meeting. The meeting will be held at the Authority’s New York City Office. Anyone wishing to attend may also do so via videoconference at the Authority’s offices in Albany and Buffalo. The meeting is open to the public.

Anyone wishing to submit written comments in advance of the meeting may forward same to the Secretary’s Office by the close of business on February 20, 2013. Please refrain from submitting alternative versions of the proposed advisory.
