I have served on the AHA GC since 2004, and I always look forward to working with this generous group of men and women. The direction, consultative feedback and feet on the ground support they provide both the AHA and the hobby helps ensure members voices are heard, the hobby grows, and the AHA focuses member resources on critical priorities.

Every incumbent that was eligble to run for another term this year did so. Susan ran again after a mandartory year off after serving three prior terms. I believe this is a testament to how much this team desires to give back to homebewers and the hobby.

I look forward to meeting and working with Tom, and know he has a lot to offer. And I spoke with Ron the other day and hope he throws his hat back in the ring next year and runs again, as he also has the fire and capabilities to serve.

I encourage any member who wants to help shape the homebrewing community at a national level to consider running for a AHA Governing Committee someday in the futue. It is a great way to serve the hobby we are all so passionate about, work with some really great people, and be further connected with some of the nicest people on earth.

Welcome, Tom.  Welcome back, Susan.
I'm term-limited next year; Ron, please run again for my seat.

I just came across a post on another forum the other day saying the AHA GC is working on giving online retailers access to verify memberships so they can provide discounts to AHA members ordering online, instead of just providing them locally.

This is great news...I wonder what else they are working on?
