2020 Membership Survey

Posted: Dec 05, 2019

We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who completed our 2020 membership engagement survey. There are great suggestions and feedback the GBC Leadership team will be acting on shortly.

Some common themes of the survey include; using social media to increase membership engagement, consider breweries as venues for technical meetings, too many proposed topics to list but all point to emerging issues and ongoing safety challenges for organizations, create community volunteer opportunities for members, establish mentorship program for new members and create better networking opportunities.

We are very excited about the feedback and look forward to the endless opportunities that lies ahead.
