Officers and Committee Chairpersons

If you are requesting help with a bee problem or seeking assistance with a beekeeping situation, we ask that you please first try contacting your county coordinator. They have a list of local beekeepers who may be of assistance to you. All PBBA members are volunteers and help in many ways as time and schedules allow.
