Over the last several months, Fred Bonjour, Chairman of the "Get the American Homebrewers Association National Homebrewers Conference (AHA NHC) here to Michigan!" effort, has been steadily obtaining support for a 2010 or 2011 AHA NHC to be held here in Michigan. Since the original proposal was submitted to the AHA last fall, several meetings with local fellow homebrewers have been held to build awareness of this effort, and get some preliminary ideas of how a Michigan based conference could be supported, and to identify volunteer resources.
The AHA's Director, Gary Glass, is coming to Michigan visit potential conference sites provided by Fred in his proposal bid. Gary will be available on Friday, March 13th, at the Corner Brewery from 7:00-8:00PM in the lounge to discuss planning for a National Homebrewers Conference and to answer people's questions. Additionally, Fred and his assistant chairman, Chris Frey, would like to get additional themes, topics and ideas from Michigan homebrewers for a potential local conference.
