Get ready for elections!

After a year of hard work behind the scenes, we are so excited to announce the start of our first-ever 'BGE elections'. Each year, 6 roles for the BGE working group will be opened for elections. This way, we ensure succession as well as provide an opportunity for our membership - the European barista community - to vote for the leadership and the direction they want our organisation to take!
