Volunteer Coordinator

Back in the olden days I was a new volunteer with a local charity. A friend who was volunteering dragged me to SAIT to help out with a ‘Beer Festival’. Back home beer festivals include cowboys and dirt so imagine my surprise at finding a whole movement dedicated to craft beer. I like beer, good beer.
