The purpose of C.L.A.B. is to prevent underage and unsafe drinking. The organization promotes programs that educate and support license holders in their efforts to adhere to the alcohol laws of Massachusetts and Cambridge.

The C.L.A.B. organization is deeply committed to ensure that server training is available to pouring and non-pouring licensees. By partnering with the Cambridge Prevention Coalition (CPC), C.L.A.B. members receive professional alcohol server training at a discounted price. All Cambridge licensees are encouraged to train their employees in proper alcohol service. Non-C.L.A.B. members may receive training from C.L.A.B./CPC at nominal cost.

Some of the benefits of being an active* C.L.A.B. member include:

  • Being scheduled first when you have business before the License Commission.
  • Discounted server training, scheduled at your convenience, at your location or with the opportunity to send staff to other scheduled training sessions near you.

Attending C.L.A.B. meetings allows members to:

  1. Collaborate with fellow licensees and city agencies.
  2. Network with other owners and managers, defining areas of concern and building consensus on issues important to central square.
  3. Collaborate with university officials and address areas of mutual concern.
  4. Hear from interesting and educational guest speakers.
  5. Participate in forums with politicians, law enforcement, business associations and other speakers who can offer insights on how Cambridge can enhance its responsible sales of alcohol.

C.L.A.B. is a not-for-profit corporation with elected officers and board of directors. The group usually meets at 3 PM on the third Wednesday of each month. *Membership requires that the applicant or a representative of the applicant attend eight of the ten meetings per year. All members are required to “chair” a committee for a term of one year after three years of membership.
