Do you have a great idea that may qualify for grant funding, but you don’t know how to write or manage grants? Do you want to bring your nonprofit beekeeping association into the 21st century so you can motivate other skilled, creative, energized beekeepers to serve? Are you struggling with your beekeeping association management, and need to educate and motivate your board?
A new nonprofit organization, LEAD for Pollinators, is here to provide Leadership, Education, Action, and Development to local and state beekeeping and agricultural associations. LEAD for Pollinators will act as a catalyst, facilitator, and collaborator to support the work of local and state beekeepers and others who work for environmental sustainability.
LEAD for Pollinators is a hive of experienced, diverse, dedicated individuals collaborating for the health and sustainability of honey bees, native pollinators, and the keepers of the ecosystem. The 35 years of combined skills, experience, and educational training of Michele Colopy and Terry Lieberman-Smith has led to wonderful collaborations, shared visions, and purposeful projects on behalf of pollinators and beekeepers. LEAD for Pollinators is joined by the Bee Heroic Project, and Have a Hive to collaborate with Cleveland Pollinator and Native Plants, Inc. as fiscal sponsor.
The nonprofit management, local and state membership association, and beekeeping experience of Ms. Colopy and Ms. Lieberman-Smith combine to provide leadership, education, action, and development to support beekeepers, beekeeping, and association management, growth, and sustainability.
