With our tenth anniversary celebrations successfully behind us we can’t help but look to the future. To guide us there we need new voices, ideas, and talents combined with the experience of those who have been there through it all. This was our first in-person election since 2019 and it was such a joy to see so many willing to dedicate their free time to helping us succeed.
Our by-laws for selecting non-designated members were designed to ensure we maintain a balance of members representing all tiers of our industry. In keeping with that tradition this year our new members include representatives from two brewers, two retailers, one distributor, and one unaffiliated enthusiast.
