The Alliance realizes that our Members each have their own story.  We meet our members where they are, how they are and for who they are.  It is with that spirit in mind that non-alcoholic beverage options will be available at any/all evening events.  Further, the Alliance is working with the Southern Nevada LGBTQ Center to provide confidential, safe spaces on-site for both AA and NA meetings to occur during the course of the stay in Vegas.  Finally, all restrooms throughout the conference space will be gender-neutral and labeled as such.  Gender-specific restrooms will be available on the Casino level and in the Hotel towers for those who prefer.  Additional details on any of the above mentioned items will be available upon request closer to the event, or by reaching out to [email protected] 

Keynotes, Industry Speakers, additional breakout sessions, and more details will be announced throughout the next week.

Additional announcements to be made over the next several weeks.
