Elections and Membership. It’s you that makes the difference.

Members of Beoir are currently voting to elect a Chair for the coming membership year, 2014-15. While the roles of Treasurer and PRO are uncontested, these elections represent the spirit on which Beoir was founded: it’s the membership that makes things happen.

As a voluntary organisation that aims to promote choice for Ireland’s beer consumers, particularly from our native microbreweries, it is encouraging that members step forward to take on a leading role in Beoir, as a spokesperson and public face of the organisation. It can be quite often a thankless task, and certainly one that aims to put the common good of the Irish beer consumer , Beoir member or not, to the fore. And this is where the membership counts.
 
Beoir is an independent, consumers’ group about to enter its fifth year of existence. In order to succeed and make a difference, we need a strong membership. I’m glad to say that our current membership of 375 paid members shows a big increase over the last 12 months (78% up), but with over 2000 site members compared to 375 paid members, there’s clearly a gap between those merely interested in a vibrant beer culture in Ireland, and those willing to put their money where their mouth is, even if it is only a tenner a year.
 
This year, the two candidates for Chair of Beoir, Wayne Dunne and Reuben Gray (current chair), are putting themselves forward to help lead our group towards our goals. Goals defined by our membership, and not people in a back room. So, if you are a member, I urge you to not only cast vour vote, but to actively contribute in the Beoir members forum where policy and direction of Beoir is discussed and enacted. It’s not just about the membership benefits which have grown over the past year!
 
And if you’re not a member already, but use this website to inform yourself on what is happening in our native brewery and beer culture, or use the BeoirFinder app to guide yourself to places serving quality Irish beer, do please consider joining, adding your voice to the growth and direction of Beoir.
 
Best of luck to both candidates.
