About the Event


A comprehensive training program for DLC members and support staff.

This training delves into the critical provisions of the Sale and Supply of Alcohol (Community Participation) Amendment Act 2023, making it an invaluable resource for both newcomers to licensing and seasoned professionals seeking to fortify and refresh their understanding of alcohol licensing matters.

Leading these sessions is Karyn South from the Crown Solicitor's Office in Christchurch.  With extensive national-level involvement in alcohol licensing and a wealth of experience as a litigator, Karyn brings invaluable expertise to the table. Her notable contributions include pivotal roles in recent case law developments, such as Two Brothers and Nekita, reflecting her deep understanding of the field.

Here's what you can expect to gain from this program:

  1. Insight into the impacts of alcohol-related harm within communities.
  2. Clarification on the roles and responsibilities of other pivotal agencies, including police, licensing inspectors and medical officers of health.
  3. Practical guidance on managing considerations pertinent to District Licensing Committees.
  4. An exploration of all aspects of hearings, from handling evidence and submissions to establishing conditions.

The training sessions will be delivered online via Zoom - 3 x two-hour sessions. You are only required to register once for a program. 

You will receive timely reminders and login details prior to the commencement of the program.

These workshops are free to attend, thanks to funding provided by Health Promotion - Health New Zealand | Te Whatu Ora.

Don't miss this opportunity to enhance your understanding of alcohol licensing matters and contribute to the well-being of our communities. We look forward to welcoming you to our training sessions.
