      Dan Cummings


      On Dec. 27th, Dan Cummings stepped down from his role as PAm Board Chairman. Dan co-founded our non-profit organization in 2006 as a 'new vision' to direct research to enhance the health of honeybees while improving crop production. Under Dan's leadership PAm has experienced tremendous growth and has had a direct impact on the beekeeping industry. In 6 short years, under Dan's guidance, PAm had 41 board meetings, undertook 37 projects and funded research studies totaling $661,203.  Dan was also instrumental in successfully bidding on and receiving $1,043,024 in grant funding, as well as, acquiring $655,000 in corporate funding.  Dan will remain on the PAm board and will continue to lend his expertise and support.  Thank you, Dan, for your leadership the past 6 years.
