The NBIC consists of members from various regions and at-large categories. The number of representatives per region is determined by barley acreage per region. Barley workers from each region elect their own representatives. Representatives from at-large categories may either be elected or appointed by the particular category involved. The NBIC may recognize a particular organization as representative of an at-large category and ask that organization to elect or appoint a representative to the NBIC. Please refer to the linked document for a current roster of NBIC members.
