ASCA seeks two new board members

The Australian Specialty Coffee Association (ASCA) has announced there are two new board positions available, and ready to be filled.

ASCA is recruiting a Membership Advocate and Head of Roasters Guild on an interim basis. These temporary positions will be voted on at the next ASCA Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Following the departure of Shae Macnamara, previous Head of the Roasters Guild, ASCA is seeking a person to fill the position. Candidates for this position should be an experienced roaster, with the skills and passion to both develop and drive projects that will increase engagement with and among roasters around Australia.

For the first time ASCA has created the new position of Membership Advocate. ASCA President Brent Williams says this person will be responsible for developing and driving campaigns that increase membership value across the organisation.

“ASCA is dedicated to increasing the value of membership to the organisation, beyond participation in competitions. We’re excited to announce the newly created position of Membership Advocate. The person in this position will be conceiving and carrying out campaigns to ensure that members receive real value from their participation with ASCA,” Brent said.

Please note that ASCA is a fully volunteer-run organisation. Anyone looking to fill these positions should be prepared to give approximately 15 hours a month to successfully contribute to the organisation.

Those interested in applying should email  CV, and a letter explaining why you want the relevant position, and what you can contribute to the organisation, to by 30 June.

The positions will be assigned by the executive on an interim basis, and will then be open to a vote at the next AGM.
