The Indiana Beekeepers' Association Fall Conference will be held at Clifty Falls State Park in Madison, Indiana. The conference will be on Friday, November 6 and Saturday, November 7. We have lined up some great speakers as well as break out session topics.
Our keynote speaker will be Peter Borst. Peter was Senior Apiarist at Cornell's Dyce Lab for Honey Bee Research for seven years. He was an apiary inspector for New York State from 2006 to 2008. and he is currently employed at Cornell doing biomedical research.
On Friday night, Tim Tucker, the American Beekeeping Federation President, will be sharing his tips on what he does to keep his bees alive. He'll also be presenting on Saturday in break out sessions.
We are very fortunate to have William Fielding from the Indiana DOT with us on Saturday. Mr. Fielding heads up the Hoosier Roadside Heritage Program.
We'll be posting the agenda, directions and pre-registration form in a few weeks. The Conference Fee is $20 for an individual and $25 for a family.
This year we will be electing our Vice-President and Treasurer. If you are interested in running for either of these offices, please contact someone on the current Nominations Committee.
