Yeeza and other AASCA members, Ive been considering an associate/enthusiast membership for a while now, mainly because Id like to get involved and where possible provide support for event presentation and logistics. Of course, there is always the hope that Ill learn more about coffee by osmosis ...
Anyway, I guess its hard to tell from the previous and current website whether thats even wanted or feasible. Member benefits seem to be centered around competition entry locally and internationally. Im not asking a cost/benefit question either, I have no issue with the cost of membership for someone who wont be entering competitions.
I guess Im just trying to get a bit of a feel for how much of a closed shop (for want of a better term) AASCA is for non-industry types. Thanks!
congratulations to Rob Forsyth for his lifetime membership :)
