Volunteer Leadership


Join us in inspiring an industry. We invite you to take a more active role in USHBC by joining a committee, and getting involved at the state or national level. 

Together, we will continue to successfully:

  • Drive demand for, and increase the value of blueberries both in the U.S. and around the world
  • Fund and publicize scientific research on the health benefits of blueberries
  • Engage industry stakeholders to create opportunities for collaboration and innovation
