Hello mead makers and mead drinkers out there.
I’m very privileged to be able to announce a huge milestone for our association. Last month the Board of Directors voted and approved the hiring of Vicky Rowe as the Executive Director for the AMMA. The position will start off as part-time contract role, but we are hopeful that we can build it up to a full-time position relatively quickly.
Prior to this decision, Vicky had been hired as a project coordinator to put together the first ever AMMA Conference which will be happening next week in Boulder, CO during the Mazer Cup International. She has done a great time putting this together and we’re already talking about next years event. In fact, I just heard a rumor that we may only have 1 ticket left for the conference. But I’m pretty sure we still have tickets available for the social gathering following the conference.
If you’re not familiar with Vicky:
Vicky Rowe has been active as a promoter and supporter of the mead industry since the mid-90’s with Got Mead? (Gotmead.com), and is totally serious about seeing the mead industry take its rightful place as a popular craft beverage on the world recreational drinking stage.
She is also an experienced marketing coach and consultant who has recently decided to focus her marketing expertise exclusively on the craft beverage market to help meaderies, cideries, breweries and distilleries expand their business and get more customers while doing what they love.
