WSLCB - Tribal Advisory Council

The Washington State Liquor and Cannabis Board (WSLCB) Tribal Advisory Council (TAC) consisted of board members, agency staff, and delegations from federally-recognized, sovereign tribal governments which had entered into policy compacts with the State of Washington or were considering doing so. The power dynamic of the TAC was fundamentally different from other WSLCB-organized bodies such as the Cannabis Advisory Council or Alcohol Advisory Council, means for WSLCB to interface with groups of licensees or representatives of licensees. The TAC was originally formed to assist during the privatization of spirits sales in the 2011-2012 timeframe. After privatization, meetings of the group were suspended and renewed for one meeting in mid-2019.
