As a USBC committee member you are required to judge regional and national events, thus would be ineligiable to compete.
Jay, based on your experience and passion for the art and science of coffee preparation I feel that you would be a very dynamic member of the committee. The marketing task force goal is to provide leadership and direction for the marketing functions only, of the USBC national and the regional events. Thus we are seeking candidates who have a strong background in marketing, advertising, and public relations and or publishing. Becasue of this skill set required we are not requiring these individuals to actively judge competitions.
Jay, if you are truly interested in marketing please complete a letter of interest and you will be professionaly considered by the USBC committee for membership. We have several other task forces being formed; equipment, judges training, and rule/regualtions. You may desire one of these other task forces more than marketing.
I welcome your interest, and wish you the best of luck!

Specialty coffee is a matter of choice; not a beverage of chance!"
