National Plant Board members, or other state designees, are actively involved in various collaborative committees or working groups. Our primary partners for this work includes USDA APHIS PPQ and the US Forest Service. Partnerships with other organizations are formed as necessary.
The goals of these committees/working groups are wide ranging and may include the following:
- Prevention of new plant pests and diseases into the U.S.
- Slow movement of established pests within the U.S.
- Improve communications
- Streamline processes
- Attend to the affairs of the National Plant Board
Committees can be found here: https://nationalplantboard.org/committees/standing-committees/.
