The Indiana Beekeepers’ Association (IBA) held its Indiana Bee School XI in Indianapolis, Indiana on Saturday, February 23, 2013 at the Southport Presbyterian Church
Dr. Jamie Ellis, Professor of Entomology and Nematology at the University of Florida, was the main speaker this year. We were very fortunate to have him back in Indiana again. Here is the full list of speakers.
We had four breakout sessions, with each session having five different topics to choose from. Lectures, hands-on workshops and discussions were held for beekeepers with any level of skill, experience or ability. Topics on introductory beekeeping tools and techniques, as well as learning opportunities for the more advanced beekeeper were available. Along with a great program was a raffle, an auction and a variety of vendor displays and supplies from several of the top vendors (such as Brushy Mtn., Dadant, Walter Kelley Co. and others).
As an attendee, you had a chance to meet and informally visit with beekeepers from across the state.

Steve Doty was the creator and has been the coordinator for the Bee School since the very first one. The guest speakers, agendas, organization and synchronization have been outstanding with great feedback and reviews. Steve's skill in coordinating the past 11 years showed his dedication and the true spirit of promoting beekeeping across the state. After 11 years, he has decided to pass on the responsibility to Mike Seib. Mike has been a beekeeper for over 43 years and we certainly expect the future bee schools will follow in the same manner.
We'd like to Thank Steve for a wonderful, unforgettable 11 years of education.
