Fall 2013: Membership Conference – Geneva, OH

November 4-6, 2013

The 2013 WineAmerica Fall Board of Directors and Membership meeting was held at the Lodge at Geneva-on-the-Lake in Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio from November 4-6, 2013. It marked the first time a WineAmerica Board Meeting was held in Ohio.

The central focus of the meeting was the restructuring of the State Associations Council (SAC). The SAC was renamed to the State and Regional Associations Advisory Council (SRAAC) and the implementation of a dues system for state and regional winery associations to become paying members of WineAmerica was recommended to the WineAmerica Board of Directors for adoption.
The WineAmerica Board adopted the measure and established the WineAmerica State and Regional Associations Advisory Council.
The first night of the meeting featured a wine dinner at the Lakehouse Inn and Winery. The second night included visits to Laurello Vineyards and Debonne Vineyards and a dinner at the Ferrante Winery.
