Welcome to the Bee Informed Partnership, Inc.

Our core mission is to provide the resources needed to reduce honey bee colony loss by providing relevant, timely colony data for beekeepers to make informed management decisions. We provide educational resources and information on the importance of honey bees for our food supply and those issues impacting honey bee health to the public and to beekeepers. We remain hopeful that reducing colony loss is an achievement that all beekeepers can make and we are passionate about making that happen!

We began as a multi-institutional grant funded by USDA-NIFA but became a non-profit in 2014 to continue our valuable work between commercial beekeepers and our technical transfer teams as well as those diagnostic and outreach services to all beekeepers. We are a member of MD Non Profits, http://www.marylandnonprofits.org/, an organization that helped us as an emerging nonprofit and continues to guide us in best practices.

We are a non-profit 501 (c) (3) organization governed by a nine member board. Our board members represent a mix of commercial beekeepers, top beekeeping scientists and epidemiologists as well as leaders in other honey bee organizations.
