We want to support your efforts to connect with local coffee professionals and build your network! The Roasters Guild encourages members and their companies to hold events that support community-building and enrichment by fostering communication, understanding, and respect between members of the coffee roasting community. We provide this support in many ways, one of which is our Member Driven Events (MDE) program. Learn how you can host your own MDE!


STEP 1: Fill out the online request form. It’s ideal to submit your request at least 1 month prior to your event date to ensure maximum exposure and participation.

STEP 2: Once we confirm your membership status, your event will be posted to the Upcoming Events page and shared your through our social media accounts.

STEP 3: During the event, please be sure to encourage the use of the hashtag #RGMDE so that other members can follow along. If you would like to provide a recap of the MDE, please fill out this form and we'll post it on the blog!
