District Resources

Please note:
Given that districts are now individual legal entities, it is important that signers of contracts or other legal documents sign with the district's legal name. The legal name of each district follows the same format: District (insert name) Master Brewers Association of the Americas (e.g. District Midwest Master Brewers Association of the Americas). Only district officers should be the signers of any legal document since they are covered by directors and officers liability insurance.
