Market Development

The Market Development Committee was formed to develop the domestic market for craft brewers. The committee was folded under the PR & Marketing Committee as a subcommittee in 2008. In January 2009 the BA Executive Team (Rich Doyle, Nick Matt, Mark Edelson and Kim Jordan) led the initiative to spin the Market Development Committee back into a stand-alone committee.
