NBWA’s Next Generation Group brings together future leaders in the beer distribution industry. The group focuses on learning more about the beer business, getting more involved with the association and networking with other distributors from all areas of the country representing all brands.
NBWA held its inaugural Next Generation Success in Leadership Conference in Chicago, August 4 – 5, 2013. The conference kicked off Sunday evening with a social event, offering future leaders the opportunity to network in a casual setting. Monday’s program featured Matt Dahlstrom, the founder of LearnBeer.com, and Craig Purser, NBWA President & CEO.
