Engage in ongoing public service activities.

Present detailed, accurate, clear, and authoritative information to the beekeeping and non- beekeeping public, both orally and in written forms.

Challenge themselves by developing proficiency in areas new to them.

Think critically and seek answers to questions or observations using the scientific method.

Support honey bees and beekeeping at local, state, and national levels.
