Coalitions

Regions & Regional Representatives

The Coalitions Regional Representatives (CRRs) and Alternate Regional Representatives (ARRs) provide a more formal communication link between the coalitions and the United States Breastfeeding Committee. Download the chart of Coalitions Regions.

Note: Under a pending bylaws amendment, the Regional Representative structure is proposed to be eliminated and replaced by new member categories for all types of breastfeeding coalitions to join the USBC directly. This transition is expected to be implemented in June-July 2017.
