Partnership programs extend NBBís reach, amplify its voice

May 1, 2013 Everyone knows two is better than one, right? There is power in numbers. Thatís the idea behind NBBís partnership programs that connect various organizations and individuals who share a common interest in and support for Americaís advanced biofuel, biodiesel. These networks of advocates support biodiesel and use their diverse backgrounds and expertise to raise the level of biodiesel understanding and awareness in their communities and nationally.

The broadest of those programs is the Biodiesel Alliance and Backers. The alliance is a diverse coalition of organizations, agencies and businesses from across the country that support the use of biodiesel. The Biodiesel Backers program is the same thing, except itís for individuals. They are open to all friends of biodiesel, ranging from farmers to fleet managers, to organizations, agencies and businesses.

From biodiesel pump openings, to grant announcements, to the latest biodiesel research and industry news, the Biodiesel Alliance provides members with information and resources to help make their jobs easier. In addition, itís a great way to get the word out to supporters about state and local events and other happenings.

Joining is easy and itís free! Just visit the Partnership Programs link on the Results tab of www.nbb.org.

NBB also launched the Next Generation Scientists for Biodiesel, the first worldwide biodiesel network for students. Many of these promising young scientists, and future energy leaders, have attended the National Biodiesel Conference & Expo, participated in webinars and connected with biodiesel industry leaders through the program. Scientists for Biodiesel is a similar network for working scientists.

Finally, the Biodiesel Ambassadors program engages biodieselís greatest champions and provides them with the tools they need to succeed in educating others on the benefits of biodiesel. These volunteers are given opportunities to use their biodiesel expertise to raise the level of understanding in their communities and nationally.

Please spread the word about these exciting NBB partnership programs that are helping the biodiesel industry increase its reach and strengthen its voice.
