was excellent for Oregon ACE our President,
Claude DaCorsi was among those invited to an
OLCC Business Partners Summit all day January
The OLCC is now willing to listen to criticisms
of its practices, from those who suffer from
them first hand. (The jury is still out on whether
that listening will turn in to improvements.)
The OLCC has not just irritated and perplexed
the adult industry the meeting featured
all manner of OLCC licensees who are equally
pissed off at a variety of OLCC enforcement
and compliance practices. The list of grievances
would exceed our available space.
OLCC director Teresa Kaiser is clearly committed
to improving relations with licensees, and seems
to be bringing her senior staff along with her.
Regulatory director Linda Ignowski was particularly
polite, professional, and open to hearing the
concerns being voiced a very good sign.
Only time will tell if the new and improved
OLCC is really new or improved.
we should know soon by the time you read
this, ACE have met with select OLCC staff to
go over adult-industry specific enforcement
issues. We are insisting that it should be black-and-white
as to what an adult entertainer can and cannot
do in an OLCC licensed venue no more
tickets for behavior you were told was acceptable.

will likely by at Dante's on a Tuesday night
in late February or early March. Then look for
a series of monthly (or more frequent) events.
Want to host one at your club? You give ACE
the door, and ACE will promote the event, books
acts, and pack the place. Your increased bar
and food revenue will more than offset the door
fee you give to ACE, plus that gift is a tax
deductible contribution to your trade association
(check with your tax advisor to be certain).
These fundraisers help pay the ACE lawyers who
keep us all in business.
the first fundraiser will have a Voter Registration
and Information table, and we'll be inviting
candidates and their campaigns. Find out which
candidates are supportive of free expression
and the free market, and be sure to vote for
the ones that support your right to enjoy
or make a living in a safe, legal adult
