An annual conference is an important part of NARBA’s mission and activities. The conference moves to different locations around the country each year. Some meetings are held in conjunction with major regional fruit and vegetable conventions (e.g. Savannah, Hershey, Grand Rapids), while others are “stand-alone” meetings or a partnership with our sister organization, the North American Strawberry Growers Association or another berry group. NARBA has also coordinated a regional meeting in Savannah, GA since 2007.
