Cider Programs Our programs fall into three categories: education, advocacy and membership. We strive to complement our partners working at regional levels. To make sure our offerings support the full range of our membership, we assess our members' needs. We do this through outreach and our annual membership survey. USACM has a volunteer-run engine. We have over a dozen volunteer committees working on the following projects: The Cider Lexicon Project We’re unifying the language of cider to help consumers more easily find ciders they enjoy. LEARN MORE Cider Marketing We’re harnessing the power of co-marketing with our members to catapult cider’s visibility in the marketplace. LEARN MORE CiderCon CiderCon is the premiere cider conference for industry professionals. It is an opportunity to learn, share, taste and network. Join us in Chicago in 2019.
