Register Today for New SAMHSA Webinar on March 20: Leveraging Partnerships in Planning/Hosting a Communities Talk Event


Join us for a webinar on Wednesday, March 20 from 2:00–3:00 p.m. ET to learn best practices for engaging partners in planning, hosting, and promoting a successful Communities Talk event.

Underage drinking adversely affects everyone in a community or on a college campus. As a result, it’s important to involve as many individuals in the community as possible in planning your event, including potential partners. Partners can provide a wealth of support for a Communities Talk event, such as recruiting or obtaining event speakers, offering a venue, and supplying volunteers.
