C. 20505 Alcoholism is a serious social problem, The National Council on Al. coholiam estimates that $2 billion annually are lost to the nation as a result of alcoholism and conditions related to it. Researchers tell us that no segment of society is immune from its effect. Our occupational health program provides a unique opportunity to act in this area.

It will also present an opportunity for each agency to share in developing C federal program that is realistic and workable. I ask that you designate a responsible person to represent you and your agency at the conference. He could be a mapber of your personal staff, your agency's Personnel Director or Occupational Health Officer or other person who can speak for your agency. Preferably, he should be the person who will be assigned continuing administrative responsibility in your agency for work in this area. So that there can be meaningful Inter- change with speakerssand effective work groups, participation will have to be limited to.your administrative representative and, if your agency has one, your Medical Director or other professional medical person.
