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:
