Get Involved

The blueberry industry experienced an era of growing awareness in the late 1990s and early 2000s, but to truly reach the potential for our industry, we must embrace the next era: an era of innovation.


Call for Volunteers

Innovation is the result of engagement from everyone in the industry: growers, marketers, exporters, and industry allies. Join us to inspire possibilities in this new era of innovation by taking an active role in the U.S. Highbush Blueberry Council (USHBC) programs. 

USHBC is currently accepting applications to serve on our newly formed committees, subcommittees, advisory boards and task forces starting in January 2024. This is an excellent opportunity for someone who is passionate about the future of USHBC, and wants to take a role in supporting the organization’s vision to empower the industry to make blueberries the world’s favorite fruit. Does this sound like you or someone you know?

People of all backgrounds and industry experience are encouraged to apply. If you would like to be considered for one of these volunteer opportunities, please submit your application by Friday, November 10, 2023.

Opportunities to serve:
– Promotion Committee, Industry Engagement Committee, and Finance Committee
– Health Research Advisory Board and Global Business Advisory Board
– Retail, Foodservice and Food Manufacturing Subcommittees
– BerrySmart Technology, BerrySmart Sustainability and BerrySmart Food Safety Task Forces

“The experiences of talking with fellow growers and industry leaders is really important, and I think it will be crucial to take our industry to the next step.”
