Our partners are an integral part of the Great Plains Master Beekeeping program. Partner associations provide a base for members of the program to meet and share their knowledge with a community of beekeepers near them. Partner Associations also provide courses and outreach opportunities for members of the regional Great Plains Master Beekeeping program. You don’t have to be in a partnered association to be in GPMB, and if you are in a partner association you don’t have to be in GPMB,  but it does help align you with mentors and other beekeepers close to you. 

If you are in a beekeeping association that is not listed here, and you would like to join, bring it up to your association president or governing committee. If you are in a leadership position at an association that would like to join the Great Plains Master Beekeeping program, please reach out to us at sbrummel2@unl.eduand we will be happy to work with you! Benefits of joining this regional training program for associations are numerous and include access to cutting edge research, validation of education topics and courses, and access to members who want to volunteer in associations.
