AASCA update

On Friday Aasca (Australasian Specialty Coffee Association) held its annual general meeting and here are a few key points that were decided.
Ross Quail elected as the new President/Chairman.
Bill Comley as Vice President.
Tom Beaumont as Treasurer/Secretary.
Other regular members of the executive are Ian Callahan (that's me), Mark Barun and Bruno Maiolo.

In other news, Robert Forsythe was officially welcomed as a lifetime member, in order to give recognition to the fantastic work he has done for our industry over the many years.

Well done to all those appointed and who put up their hand to help strengthen the specialty coffee industry here and abroad. For those of you who haven't seen the new website or are interested in becoming a member please head over to for more info.
