Become a Member
The Australian Beverages Council forms small working groups comprised of Members to tackle individual issues or particularly projects that are best handled in a smaller group rather than by one of the organisation’s committees.

Often, an issue will be raised in one of the committees and a decision to form a separate working group, often with additional Members with highly specialised skills from outside of the committee, will be made. Working groups are frequently led by the Public Affairs Manager and/or the Technical & Regulatory Affairs Manager.

In addition to handling single issues and projects in a group setting with specific expertise, working groups allow for more regular meetings than the scheduled committee meetings throughout the year (of which there are about five).

At any one time, the Australian Beverages Council has about four working groups delivering projects on behalf of its Members.

It reports to the Beverage Industry Environmental Committee.
