ALEXANDRIA, VA (May 24, 2017)— Andrew Deloney, chairman of the Michigan Liquor Control Commission, assumed responsibilities and was introduced as NABCA’s board chairman during the Annual Conference yesterday. It had been more than 20 years since someone from Michigan served in this role.
“I am honored by the support of my fellow directors and look forward to working with each of you to continue to move NABCA forward and grow and expand the services that our association provides its members and other organizations,” he said.
Among other responsibilities, Mr. Deloney has chaired the Governance, Internal Affairs, Finance, and Industry Relations International and North America committees for NABCA.
He was originally appointed as an administrative commissioner to the Michigan Liquor Control Commission in June 2011 by Gov. Rick Snyder for a four-year term, and was re-appointed in April 2015 for a second four-term that expires in June 2019. At the time of both of his appointments, Gov. Snyder designated him chairman.
Mr. Deloney earned a bachelor’s degree from Albion College in Albion, Michigan.

The Michigan Liquor Control Commission (MLCC) was created upon the repeal of Prohibition by the legislature acting in special session in December of 1933. The act creating it empowered the Commission to control all alcoholic beverage traffic within this state. The Commission consists of five members appointed by the Governor. The mission of the Michigan Liquor Control Commission is to make alcoholic beverages available for consumption while protecting the consumer and the general public through regulation of those involved in the sale and distribution of these alcohol beverage products.
Established in 1938, NABCA is the national association representing the Control State Systems - those jurisdictions that directly control the distribution and sale of beverage alcohol within their borders. Headquartered in Alexandria, VA, NABCA’s mission is to support member jurisdictions in their efforts to protect public health and safety and assure responsible and efficient systems for beverage alcohol distribution and sales.
