Title: Congratulations to the newly elected AHA GC members, and thank's to all that ran
Post by: Crispy275 on April 03, 2012, 06:00:02 PM
I want to thank everyone that ran for this year’s AHA Governing Committee election.

By doing so, they demonstrated their desire to serve the greater homebrewing community. The candidate statements made it is clear that they already do this in a number of ways. From organizing and/or judging homebrew competitions, providing leadership to their local clubs, actively working to change onerous legislation to improve the legislative climate for homebrew legislation, providing retail opportunities for homebrewers and a myriad of other ways, they demonstrate their commitment.

In their candidate statements they shared their life experiences and how they could benefit the AHA GC.  From relevant technical experience and/or skill sets they have picked up over the years, Boards they have sat on, jobs they have held, charities they support, leadership skills they have demonstrated, they explained why they were running and what they felt they could contribute.

Collectively, all of them demonstrated their passion for the hobby and those involved. Along with the explosive growth in both the hobby of homebrewing and the craft brewing community, we have enjoyed an unprecedented slate of candidates filled with depth and experience. It is unfortunate that we couldn’t bring all of them on board and tap the collective wisdom and experience that they all bring to the table.

Debbie Cerda and Ron Price, welcome to the AHA GC; Denny Conn– welcome back. 

And to, Bruce Bueger, Terry Denham Dave Dixon, David Kidd, Terry Parker and Curt Stock - thank you for offering to serve on the AHA GC this year, and keep doing all the good things you do for the hobby and its community!

I'm happy to be back and do whatever I can to make this hobby as fulfilling as possible for everyone.  I'm also kinda glad I'm term limited after this....9 years is a long time!

Me too! How many AHA members who voted have accounts on the forum? Denny and Ron are both regulars here. I don't think it's a coincidence.

I read this and pictured you with a tiara and a sash, giving that little hand wave.

I was glad to see Debbie Cerda make it, she seemed to have a good resume and we need as many women in the game as possible.

At least the meeting is down to 4 hours this year.  They used to run 6+.

Ha! Seeing those gothic looking gathering made me laugh! Yeah, somewhere between Animal House and herding cats is really closer to reality.

Seriously, the men and women of the AHA GC each comes with their own unique talents, insights and they all share the passion of learning about, and sharing their knowledge of homebrewing, and the common desire to ensure the hobby's health and the desire to make the AHA the best it can be.
