What do you want your AHA Governing Committee to do for you?
« on: April 20, 2010, 07:58:47 AM »
This topic is for you to ask for what you would like us, your Governing Committee, to discuss and help you with.  How can we make the AHA better.  Put it down here.

Thanks Fred

I was actually thinking of the old-school soda machines, the ones with the bottles, but re-purposed like a true homebrewer would ;)

Seriously, What would make it easier for you to stay in touch with what's happening, your brewing, your club, etc.

NRA style bulletins. You get the latest news, links to the full stories, and then they pimp their products at the bottom. :)
If it was no more than one a week, it would be a good feature to add. Also good to force more traffic to the website.

The moral majority, is neither.

Micro brewery Co-Ops

IE
Russian River beers etc on the East Coast
Whatever you West Coast guys want from us over there

The Microbreweries could work together on this.
Truck heads West with beer on it
Truck heads East with beer on it
Etc, etc, etc

Where the AHA / BA gets involved with that is in campaigns such as raising the limits.  The breweries that can distribute can do so wherever they choose.  Legal restrictions, point them out, spearhead a campaign, and the BA/AHA will help.

How about the concept of "ranking homebrewers".

Sort of on the order of beer judges but different in the sense that the homebrewer is the creator.

Food for thought.

correction...Beer for thought.  ;)

User friendly stuff....on the bb

Like one click to show all of my posts.

Like  in the for sale and wanted zones, I have difficulty erasing my posts...
so I have been changing the heading to read...disregard or void or such when the
post really needs to be deleted.

I guess the first thing on the agenda is planning for the 2011 NHC.  With 2 regions maxing out this year some changes are in order.  I'm sure the topic is already being discussed and I'm confident the Governing Committee will address it appropriately.  Another topic already on the table is shipping competition entries. Your efforts on this front are greatly appreciated!
If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!

Man, you're easy to please!  Both of those topics are high on our list.
