I'm pleased to take on the board chair position for ASBA. I look forward to working with Mike, Lauren, Donna, and the Board as they continue building ASBA into a significant supporter of the growing Alberta craft beer industry.

The year ahead will be another interesting one as the now 111 Alberta breweries strive to grow and improve. Operating without an Executive Director for the last year has been challenging, and I want to thank Lauren and Neil for their tremendous efforts keeping ASBA active. Looking forward, there are opportunities to work with government on policy, continue developing consumer awareness, increasing ASBA's resources available to brewers, and increase communication. I encourage all our members to contact ASBA on any regulatory challenges they face and opportunities that they feel ASBA can support them with.
