2018 Western Regional Conference - Recap

And they're off!


The 2018 Western Regional Conference is currently underway, and attendees are already gushing about what they've experienced thus far. But don't take our word for it: Thomas Eslinger, Los Angeles Chapter Member who joined the USBG six months ago for the “community and educational aspects," shares his WRC #1 Takeaway:

This year's WRC educational seminars covered topics such as: The Giving Spirit, The Craft of the Bar, Creating Magic With Management, No Italy-No Cocktail and Bartenders Against Sexual Assault, appropriately-timed for Sexual Assault Awareness Month (#SAAM). Attendees were also schooled on American Brandy, Rum Classification, Hops School, The Sour Hour and an educational tour and tasting at Westland Distillery that ended with an home-style lunch!

An especially impactful seminar, Revolutionary Entrepreneurship, presented by National Vice President, Kyle McHugh, provided members with tools to achieve entrepreneurial success.

Finally, USBG members and staff bravely took to the stage to tell stories of a past life and lessons learned during the Storytelling Dinner, sponsored by Diageo.


AND! None of this could be possible without our generous sponsors! 


Their dedication to adjacent education helps make these events a huge success. We appreciate you immensely!

A virtual toast!



And... Congratulations to this region's World Class Finalists!

See everyone next week at the Southwest Regional Conference in Las Vegas.

I would like to express immense gratitude for the efforts of the Seattle chapter's officers and volunteers. They were gracious hosts and created very unique experiences for all delegates and competitors.
