ACA Board Nominations Due January 17

Are you full of energy and ideas on how to support the ACA and grow the industry? Perhaps you’d consider running for the ACA Board of Directors? Our annual nomination window is now open. Elections take place during CiderCon–electronically, so all U.S. member cideries may vote (1 vote per cidery). Although it is not required, we strongly encourage candidates to have an ACA volunteer history before running for office.  A couple more things to know about service:

  • To qualify for candidacy, you must be a permanent employee of a bonded cidery producing cider in the U.S. 
  • Each seat has unique requirements. The seats open for elections this year are:
    • Northwest Chair – Open to Oregon, Washington, Montana, Idaho and Alaska cideries producing under 1 Million gallons of cider a year
    • Mountain West Chair – Open to cideries producing less than 1 Million gallons of cider a year in Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota, Kansas, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas
    • Pacific Coast Chair – Open to California and Hawaii cideries producing under 1 Million gallons of cider a year
    • At Large – Open to any U.S. cidery regardless of size
    • Large Cidery – Open to any US. cidery producing over 1 Million gallons of cider a year
  • Incumbents may be running for their seats again.
  • Terms are three years. 
  • Candidates will receive further instructions on developing their platforms and what board service includes.
