I know, weird topic for the growing pro board, but bare with me a second.........
In 2008, me and a fellow homebrewer started our local club. The closest previously was over an hours drive away. Since then, he has stopped coming to meetings, so I'm the only "founding member" left. A little over a year ago, a LHBS opened in our town, and we are having meetings there, and we've grown from 5-6 guys, to 20-30 folks.
But then last July, I got a Brewer's Notice, and am selling my beer. Obvisiously, can't enter a BJCP sanctioned homebrew comp.
Last month, I was elected President of our club, and I've been one of the officers since this clubs inception.
I think next January I will decline any of the officer positions, and just be a member.
How many of you have remained part of the leadership of your clubs, once you went pro? Does it really matter? Am I being silly by even asking the question?
