Through its mission to unite the hospitality community and advance professional bartending, the USBG believes in empowering bartenders to take charge of their careers through providing a solid platform of membership. 

What is the Member Referral Program?

Membership is built upon a strong foundation of community, camaraderie, and leadership - and the Guild believes in recognizing leaders that go the extra mile to build and strengthen that mission and purpose.  Click here to learn more.

How does the Member Referral Program work?

When you refer someone for membership, be sure they mention you on their application - it's that simple!

Each quarter, the member with the most referrals will be gifted an exclusive USBG swag item. And each year an annual recipient is recognized, too!


Congrats to our 2022 third quarter member referral recipient:
Way to go, @Beth Dixon - USBG Richmond Chapter President!

Because of her efforts and success in referring members, she earned a limited edition USBG t-shirt!

Which USBG chapter are you a member of? Richmond, VA

How many years have you been in the industry? 20

What is your favorite quote? "This too shall Pass" I know it's a bit generic, but this has gotten me through many hard times. Almost everything is temporary.

What is the best advice you have ever received? To treat others as you wish to be treated. It can be really hard to do, but I try to show everyone I encounter empathy and grace.

If you could change jobs with anyone for a day, who would it be? I always thought it would be cool to be a Forensic Scientist

Why did you join the USBG? To further my education.

What is your #1 take-away from your USBG Member experience thus far? That it is about community as much as it is learning.
