TIP Membership Application

The Tequila Interchange Project is a not for profit organization comprised of hospitality professionals, academics, and agave enthusiasts who believe in preserving and promoting sustainable, traditional and quality practices in the tequila and agave distilled spirits industry. The Tequila Interchange Project works to represent the voices of Tequila consumers worldwide while respecting and protecting the history, culture and methods of artisanal producers of agave distillates throughout Mexico.  We believe that by bringing together a diverse group of individuals we can create a strong global presence focused on education and advocacy in regards to the culture of Tequila and agave distilled spirits.

In order for the Tequila Interchange Project to be effective we need members who will consistently be active participants.  As we are a volunteer organization the compensation that one receives for this involvement is one that is unquantifiable.  Through the Tequila Interchange Project you will meet like minded individuals around the world, have access to the most recent academic studies regarding the history, cultural and economics of the tequila and agave distilled spirits industry, and have first hand experience with producers of tequila, mezcal, raicilla and bacanora throughout Mexico.  Members are required to actively fundraise for the organization, participate in festival events, host educational events, and to maintain positive relationships with the makers of agave distillates while representing the ideals and goals of the Tequila Interchange Project.  If you would like additional information regarding these expectations prior to completing the application please email us at tequilainterchangeproject@gmail.com.

We’re not going to lie…the application is a bit lengthy.  As you fill it out please remember that there are no right or wrong answers to the questions.  We chose these questions in order to create an organization that represents the worldwide market of agave distillates so that we can be most effective in achieving our initiatives and goals.  Depending upon your occupation not all questions may pertain to you.  If the question does not pertain to you but the question reminds you of something equivalent in your field please let us know.  We would love to hear about it.  Most importantly please answer the questions frankly and honestly.

Salud!
