Generally, every three months, representatives of the branches in the Greater Manchester Region meet to discuss regional and national issues. The elected Regional Director, Phil Moss, attends and meetings are rotated around the branches. The hosting branch chooses a suitable pub that has the space needed, and chairs the event. Meetings start at 1pm and run for two hours or so.
Like all CAMRA meetings any member can attend and these meetings can get quite lively! They are also very informative. An invitation to members of the National Executive means there is a different guest speaker each time. Regional items are discussed and agreed - such as Pub, Club and Cider Pub of the Year contests, the Manchester Beer and Cider Festival, plus various other beer festivals in the region and beyond.
Several ROB members play an important and key role, as well as providing many volunteer helpers and judges.
