NBBQA Regional Membership Map

The National Barbecue Association is divided into five regions as shown below. Each area is represented by a Vice President who may be able to assist fellow members inside their regions. Each Regional VP is charged with representing and reporting their members’ interests on the Board of Directors. These VP's are the official liaisons between you, the member, and the board. However, their opinions and recommendations are solely their own. Good barbecue is always in the opinion—or mouth—of the beholder.
