Help Shape the Future of Your Industry

The Independent Brewers Association Board and Project Groups are made up of volunteers who share their time and experience for the benefit of the entire industry. We will continue to build on these groups to benefit all of our members. 

Right now we are taking nominations for three board members, alongside expressions of interest for five project groups: Consumer Engagement, Trade Engagement, People, Sustainability and Hospitality Project Groups.

Board positions are made up from full member breweries, while Project Groups are comprised of Brewery and Associate Members. 

This is a chance to be part of the next phase for our industry. As the IBA continues to create resources, events, and build on the hard work that has come from board and project members over the years we know there are still challenges and opportunities ahead. We want to make sure we have the right people in place to lead the industry. 

Board Director Details:

Nominations closed Thursday September 30. Voting Open until November 4.

We received a record number of nominations this year, with 12 brewery members keen to be involved in driving the future of the IBA.
