Fall Conference in Mountain View coming up!
The 2016 Fall Conference will be held on November 4-5, at the Ozark Folk Center in Mountain View, Arkansas. Our conference this year is co-sponsored by Wicwas Press, and will feature two popular speakers, authors and researchers. Please join us for a weekend in the scenic ozarks with Dr. Larry Connor and Dr. Diana Sammataro. Our last fall meeting was a door-buster, and we hope to have as many attend again. To accommodate our growing membership, the kind folks at the Ozark Folk Center have moved our meeting into a larger auditorium. Full details are now available on our meeting page. See you there!

Another Great Fall Meeting in Mountain View!
The 2015 Fall meeting of the Arkansas Beekeepers Association was a great success. Our remarkable speakers, Dr. Tom Seeley and Dr. Tammy Horn, presented many fascinating talks this year. The ABA thanks them, and all the others who helped make our conference so memorable.
We value the feedback from our members. In order to continue to improve our meetings, venues and speakers, please pass along both your compliments and criticism through your regional ABA directors.
The annual business meeting was held, and a new slate of officers was elected. Congratulations to our new ABA President Jeremy Bemis.
The UA Cooperative Extension Service offers beekeeping short courses around the state. These free classes can be a great way for new beekeepers to become familiar with the basics, or as a refresher course for experienced beekeepers. Check the current schedule of upcoming classes to locate one near you. If there are no classes scheduled nearby, visit with your local County Extension office and let them know of your interest.
