"My goal with National Board is to be a voice for the members that want to see the USBG move forward with the bartending world. I want to see us make an effort to increase diversity and be able to speak to all communities within the bartending world through our programs, community partnerships and by increasing our ladders of opportunity for leadership roles within our organization. The USBG has provided me with education, access and most importantly community, and I want the USBG to provide these experiences for even more in our community." -- Raul Faria
"Running for this position is important in my heart. I love this organization from top to bottom. There is no greater joy then watching young impressionable bartenders blossom into professionals. I will for the rest of my life give part of myself to this organization in whatever capacity I can and am graciously elected to do. I love reciting the core values to other members and reminding that leadership roles in this organization are like giving hospitality to hospitality professionals. It is no longer about us, we are here to give and the real reward is watching the next generation take the gifts we lay out for them and run with it. Just like curating a great experience for a guest there is no greater feeling. It truly is rewarding, and I hope to give what I can to continue to lay those gifts out for generations to come." -- Joseph Fredrickson
