The National Association of Plant Breeders (NAPB), was begun as an initiative of the Plant Breeding Coordinating Committee (PBCC) which began in 2005. The PBCC (official committee SCC 080) is a forum for leadership, regarding issues, problems, and opportunities of long-term strategic importance to the contribution of plant breeding to national goals. The NAPB is the outreach group that represents plant breeders in federal, state, commercial and non-government organizations.
