Why I Became President of CAMRA Alberta

I know that at a local level the Alberta craft beer industry creates jobs, supports farmers, contributes to charities, and just generally makes our communities nicer places in which to live, work, and play. I also know that the industry is full of people who care deeply about their craft, collaborate rather than compete, and go out of their way to help each other. I wanted to be a part of that.
