LEAD for Pollinators is excited to present a national conference Becoming 21st Century Leaders: Women in Beekeeping and Agriculture. This national conference will be held at Walsh University, 2020 E. Maple St., N. Canton, OH 44721, October 24-25, 2020. Using feedback from women, and men beekeepers, and other agricultural stakeholders, this event addresses the issues raised by the beekeeping and agricultural community.

This conference will offer three educational tracts: Leadership, Business, and Safety for Women (in the bee yard and in the board room), featuring a total of 32 different topics. Speakers are trained, experienced, licensed experts in law, accounting, biology, volunteer administration, education, leadership, and more. Speakers will provide you with the “how to” you need to start your business, provide insightful “lessons learned” from real-world experience in management, and offer skills and strategies for personal safety in and around the bee yard and the board room.

This event serves unique needs in beekeeping and agriculture. Planning for all contingencies in an uncertain world, we are expanding the attendance option to include “virtual on-line attendance” for registered attendees. Our conference will be produced by professional conference videographers and IT specialists experienced in virtual events.
