We want to support your efforts to connect with local coffee professionals and build your network! The Coffee Technicians 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 technicians 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!

Steps to Submit an MDE

Step 1: Click the green “Submit Event” button on our calendar here. It’s ideal to submit your request at least 1 month prior to your event date to ensure maximum exposure and participation.

Step 2: We’ll post your event to the CTG events calendar and share on our social media channels.

Step 3:  During the event, please be sure to encourage the use of the hashtag #CTGMDE so that other members can follow along. If you would like to provide a recap of the MDE, please email us at ctg@sca.coffee we'll post it on the CTG blog!
