The American Herbalists Guild is deeply grateful for the generous support of our sponsors. Their contributions allow us to continue to fulfill our organizational mission and support the important work of our members as herbalists in their communities.
Your AHG Sponsorship…More Important Than Ever!
In the past year, AHG has been an integral part of the national response to the COVID-19 pandemic. We've provided extensive, curated resources for herb-based COVID responses via our website, sponsored free webinars on botanical protocols relevant to our emerging understanding of the virus, and crafted safe practice guidelines for herbal practitioners. Despite the restriction on travel and social gathering, we quickly restructured our annual symposium to an interactive virtual platform that attracted more than 700 individual attendees and 26 vendors. We were able to fund our annual community service awards and welcomed many new members to the Guild.
This heroic task results from our dedicated staff's team efforts, who suddenly found themselves working from home, the guidance of our Governing Council, and the many volunteers who are active on AHG committees. And we accomplished this while we all navigated the disruptions in our personal lives set in motion by the pandemic.
We are proud of what we did in the past year, and we know that our work continues. It may be a year or even years before life returns to anything resembling normalcy. And the challenges to our health that the pandemic has created are still unfolding. Our belief that botanical medicine plays a critical role in the future of health care is stronger than ever. The AHG will continue to fulfill our organizational mission to support access to herbal medicine to all, to advocate for excellence in herbal education through our programs and those of our member schools, and to promote clinical herbalism as a viable profession rooted in ethics, competency, diversity, and freedom of practice.
But to meet the challenges ahead, we need your support. When your business or organization pledges support of the AHG through a year-long sponsorship, you play an integral part in our ability to provide leadership in these times of significant change.
Our sponsorship opportunities help us, but they also provide substantial benefits to you and your herb-based endeavors. The expanded emphasis on virtual education and on-line shopping means that your customer base is now global. The prominent role the AHG plays as a respected source of herbal information lends itself to being a platform for reaching even more people.
Our sponsorship packages offer you a range of benefits designed to promote your business to herbal practitioners, enthusiasts, potential students, clients, and customers. Act now to take advantage of our sponsorship opportunities and join us to move herbalism into the future. We are in this together!
