Piedmont Bird Club Committees
PBC has a number of committees that carry out the work of the Club. We encourage members to get involved with PBC by volunteering to join a committee of interest.
Standing committees are listed below, along with a brief description. For more information or to volunteer to serve on a committee, use the Contact Us form.
