ASCA Newsletter - March edition out now!

01 March 2016

Welcome to our first newsletter for 2016! Our new Committee is settling in with plans for a great year ahead. You can read profiles of our Committee members on our website here

Last week, the ASCA Committee met face-to-face for the first time in three years (our monthly meeting are normally held by teleconference). During this important Planning Day, we discussed a range of issues concerning the association, so that we can continue to provide services, events and information that are valuable and relevant to members. One of the key things to come out of the meeting is that we need to build up our Sub-Committees. We would love to be able to host events, run workshops and offer local contact people in every state, but we can only do this if membership of our Sub-Committees grows. If you can spare a few hours a month and would like to get involved, please email our Executive Officer, Louise Wellington, for more information.

Stay tuned - we have some exciting plans and new projects in the pipeline. All will further our aim of growing Australia's artisan cheese community, and we will share them with you in future newsletters...
