I'm pasting below an email I received (names redacted other than Mr. Belli for privacy) with a little information about President Jim Belli using his position for personal advancement with little respect for the beekeeping community in Illinois. I personally know very few details about the situation other than what is in this email but I do know and trust the people that ARE involved. Sign the petition below if you agree that behavior like this by an elected officer in a state level beekeeping association is not acceptable, please state in the comments in the petition whether you are an Illinois beekeeper and specifically and ISBA member. Mods, move to the appropriate forum if this is not the correct place for this discussion. I did not see another board that would be a more suitable place so I put it here.
