TASK FORCES

 





 

 

 




Task Forces are cross discipline, short-term, project-oriented groupings designed to accomplish specific task(s). NAPPC partners will have the opportunity to provide input into groups on which they do not serve. New Task Forces will be created as needed.

The Task Forces are made up of diverse, interested parties who work to accomplish one specific pollinator related task.

2015 NAPPC Task Force Descriptions

Coming soon...





If you have not attended a previous NAPPC meeting
, you should note:

First, the emphasis is on the work of NAPPC Task Forces, each of which has a specific charge agreed upon before the Conference.  Since the NAPPC Task Force format has been responsible for many of NAPPC’s successful endeavors, the Steering Committee has determined that Task Force activity is the highest priority when we meet.  Therefore, Task Forces will meet twice: once on Wednesday and once on Thursday(Agenda).
During these two sessions, your Task Force will envision your completed project and work through the steps to get there.  You will be asked to commit to at least one aspect in the completion of this project.  The idea is to diversify the input, mobilize maximum impact, and to spread the work over many participants.  You will be encouraged to set realistic time frames and through consistent, collaborative communication and effort, the Task Force will achieve its mission.

This year, over 100 personally invited professionals from multiple disciplines will form NAPPC.  Not all NAPPC participants share exact perspectives and approaches, but when we assemble as a NAPPC collaborative, we put aside personal and organizational agendas, we respect differing points of view and we seek to find areas of commonality in order to increase broad-based progress for pollinators.  You will see we have Republican and Democrat, Science and Industry, Agriculture and the Environment, Mexico, Canada, Brazil, Panama, Columbia, Peru, and the US, working side by side. 

Your personal contribution will make a huge difference to the future of our planet.  In fact, this collaboration already reflects a very positive beginning.  Together, this unique gathering of organizations from the scientific, nonprofit, government and business worlds is strategically addressing the pollinator issue from all fronts.  We are nurturing a global, public constituency actively engaged in pollinator conservation to imbue the next generation with the principles of sustainable ecosystems.
