To be eligible to serve as a Director of the Guild your organisation must be a current financial Brewery Member of the Guild. Only one person from each Brewery Member may be on the board at any one time.
About the Board
The Board is ideally comprised of a diverse representation of our membership and currently comprises of 8 members, however we would like to see this increased to 9:
- Micro-Breweries – Three Directors
- Small Breweries – One Directors
- Medium Breweries – Three Directors
- Large Breweries – One Director
Eddie Gapper (Medium Brewery) and Brian Watson (Medium Brewery) were elected in 2020 for a term of two years.
The following Directors will be re-standing at the AGM:
- Paul Finney (Micro Brewery)
- David Nicholls (Micro Brewery)
- Sebastian Burke (Micro Brewery)
- Joseph Wood (Medium Brewery)
- Jason Bathgate (Medium Brewery)
- Keith Riley (Large Brewery)
Directors can expect to spend between a maximum of 4-6 hours a month on Board activities together with one full day strategic planning event a year. Directors will also be invited to represent the Guild at member and industry events. The Guild are actively seeking candidates who can, as much as possible, commit to serving at least one full 2-year term.
Directors are unpaid volunteers. Out-of-Pocket expenses for meetings will be paid for by the Guild.
