Title
Resolution to Approve Street Closing for the ALLIANCE (National Training Institute) Opening Ceremony Dinner - Sunday, July 31, 2022 from 6:00 AM to Midnight
Memorandum
Attached for your consideration is a resolution to approve the closing of Washington Street between Fletcher and Thayer from 6:00 AM on Sunday, July 31, 2022 to Midnight to stage the ALLIANCE (National Training Institute) Opening Ceremony Dinner for ALLIANCE/NTI participants, guests and staff.

The National Training Institute (NTI) is a joint program between the National Electrical Contractors Association and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers to train qualified workers and is one of the largest apprenticeship and training programs in the country. The National Joint Apprenticeship & Training Committee (National Training Institute), which is now known as ALLIANCE, held its annual National Training Institute (NTI) in Knoxville, TN for 19 years until 2008. ALLIANCE is currently in what would have been its 14th year in Ann Arbor and at the University of Michigan (two years are excluded due to the pandemic).

Tents, tables and chairs will be spread throughout the Washington Street area for the dinner and all food will be served on University of Michigan property.

The sponsor, ALLIANCE/NTI, will submit an application for approval from the State of Michigan Liquor Control Commission for temporary sales, service and consumption of alcoholic beverages in the defined areas pursuant to the M.L.C.C. regulations.

The sponsor agrees to obtain all necessary permits, to provide evidence of proper liability insurance as required, to comply with all City regulations governing the use of the streets and will reimburse the City for all event expenses.

Notification of the street closings will be provided through the City's website and also through communications made through the University of Michigan Communications Office and the Ann Arbor Convention & Visitors Bureau.
