AHA Governing Committee Candidate Nominations

The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) is looking for a few good homebrewers!

In advance of the 2013 AHA Governing Committee elections, the AHA is looking for nominations for two of the committee’s 15 seats. 

The AHA Governing Committee plays a significant role in shaping the present and future direction of the AHA. To make the most of the challenges and opportunities presented to the organization, the AHA depends on its members to step forward and serve on the Governing Committee. 

Governing Committee Commitment

  • Attending the annual Governing Committee meeting at the AHA National Homebrewers Conference
  • Taking part in monthly Governing Committee conference calls
  • Regular email communications
  • Potential subcommittee work

Besides great ideas and boundless enthusiasm, candidates should have had some experience in organizations at the local or regional level. Initiative, perseverance, and creativity are much welcomed qualities. The AHA Governing Committee acts both as a sounding board and a management consultant team for the AHA. Additionally, committee work provides structure, content and physical support in the case of National Homebrewers Conference.

  • Candidates should submit a short written statement of no more than 500 words explaining your qualifications for a position on the Governing Committee. Please include contact information, experience, abilities, constituency, and vision for the future of the AHA.
