Rianne Joosse – (membership retention, webinars), email

As a theologist and teacher my focus lies with what motivates and connects people. Always looking for the dialogue and searching for ways to let people share knowledge so more can benefit.
After 7 yrs on the board of PINT (6 yrs as chairman) time has come to use my experience for the benefit of EBCU and her member organisations. Living in Amsterdam for 4 yrs now, but also frequently staying in northern Italy were my partner has a winery. And perhaps that’s the reason grape ales is one of my favorite beer styles. Was elected for EBCU Executive in 2021.
