Many beekeeping member associations have realized the restrictions of their IRS classification constraining their growth, and limiting their service even to their members.
As more people become aware of the role of pollinators, legislators are facing citizen proposals to change the way they classify, and manage lawns and public spaces. Learn more from the former city council member, and beekeeper/gardener.
One person can make change to protect pollinators and our environment.
Leaders providing member association education will ensure the longevity of their local, state, and national association only if they embrace the “new normal.” Take your feedback from your audience and make the changes to protect, educate, inspire, and grow your audience.
Intern Will Inspire & Educate Future Generations
As the number of individuals receiving the Covid-19 vaccinations increases, the closer we are to gathering at member meetings, educational programs, conferences, and events. This past year of constrained in-person events and the rise of virtual activities to stay connected has shown us some changes we should retain from this experience.
The return to large events, conferences, fairs, and more will be slow for many of us. The full audience will not return for a while, and conference planners, and member education leaders will have to compromise with speakers, members, venues, and vendors.
To provide education we have to continue to be open to new ways to communicate, to share, and to learn from each other. Learn to plan and implement hybrid conferences and meetings. The new normal will have to offer both on-site and online access.
