MIW Bulletins Introduction

The following e-mail was sent to the FWWS Board by Jennifer Skoda, the WSLCB Non-Retail Enforcement Captain:

I am writing to let you know that the Washington State Liquor Control Board (WSLCB) has adopted an electronic alert system, entitled the MIW Bulletin, for periodically notifying non-retail licensees of issues of mutual concern. The WSLCB will issue the MIW Bulletin via e-mail.

Introducing the Electronic MIW Bulletin

The MIW Bulletin is in electronic format designed to target manufacturers, importers and wholesalers so that the WSLCB may quickly communicate with you about liquor regulation news that is relevant to your business.

Below are examples of times when we may issue an MIW Bulletin:
  • Recent decisions by the Board affecting your industry;
  • Emerging enforcement issues to bring to your attention;
  • Opportunities for you to weigh in on proposed rules affecting your industry;
  • Clarifying rules, laws or other issues where confusion exists.
Contact Information

The WSLCB does not currently maintain email addresses for most licensees. We are working through industry associations including the Wine Institute, the Family Wineries of Washington State, the Washington Brewers Guild, the Washington Beer and Wine Wholesalers, and the Distillery Representatives of Washington (DRAW) to reach you.

If you received this e-mail from the WSLCB, you don’t need to do anything. We have your e-mail address.

If this message was forwarded to you and you are interested in receiving future MIW Bulletins, please send the following information to the e-mail address below. Please put the term “MIW Bulletin” in the subject line.
  • Name of business
  • License #
  • Contact first and last name
  • E-mail address
Pease send this information via email to JS[at]

Coming Soon

We are creating a non-retail enforcement page on the WSLCB Enforcement Page. This page will host all MIW Bulletins, frequently asked questions, and other information that we hope you find informative and helpful. Look for the new site this May.

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at (360) 664-1639 or JS[at]
