- BA NEWS RELEASE:
At a two-day meeting held February 26-27 in Boulder, Colo., the Brewers Association (BA) Board of Directors introduced changes to the association's foundational framework to better serve the not-for-profit trade group's membership of small and independent American craft brewers.
"The changes to fundamental elements of our industry were undertaken with significant deliberation and consideration of many voices," said Paul Gatza, Brewers Association director. "In November 2013, at the Board's direction, the BA surveyed our voting brewery members regarding the ‘foundational documents' of our association. The results gave us ample member input on these matters of critical importance as the Board headed into its strategic planning meeting."
Gary Fish, chair of the BA Board of Directors and president of Deschutes Brewery, added: "The Board takes seriously its duty to help the association evolve with the dynamic industry it represents. The Board worked to provide forward-looking leadership, recognizing our role as elected decision makers while taking into account the variety of views expressed by the Brewers Association's diverse membership."
