The organization recently announced it had held its first elections for executive board. Those elected include; Michael Boyd, president and coffee buyer at Boyd Coffee Company; Mark Stell, v.p. and owner of Portland Roasting; Marie Franklin, treasurer and director of global sales at Sustainable Harvest Coffee Importers; Mary Ellen Signer, secretary; Ryan Cross, marketing committee chair; Kevin Dibble, events committee chair and production manager at Kobos Coffee; Don Dominguez, membership committee chair and owner of K&F Coffee Roaster; Dan Welch, p.r. committee chair and owner of World Cup Coffee & Tea; and Matt Miletto, sponsorship committee chair and owner of Water Avenue Coffee Company.
