The UVa alcohol risk management training is required for individuals who serve as Event Managers at UVa events. An Event Manager must be present on UVa property where alcohol is served and underage guests are in attendance. Please see the Guidelines for Hosting a Safe Event to follow the steps and complete the online training.
Sponsors may be required to obtain an ABC license directly from that state agency for events where alcohol is served. (Note: Catering companies that serve alcohol already comply with this ABC requirement.) The following are conditions where an ABC license is required:
- If the sponsor is charging money for the event. ("Charging" can include entrance fees, donations, purchase of a cup for unlimited beverages, etc.)
- If the event is open to the public.
- If the space is open or in a public area.
- If access to the event area is open.
For more information on ABC licenses, see the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control website.
