The purpose of HAS is to bring the latest scientific-based beekeeping research, basic beekeeping classes and advanced beekeeping classes to beekeepers.
HAS was started in 2001 with a grant from Eastern Apicultural Society. Donations and fees collected by Heartland Apicultural Society support conference hosting costs; the board of directors and support staff are all volunteers.
Annual conference locations rotate every year and this year, the conference will be held at Washington University in St. Louis July 11-13, 2018. Your state is one of the 9 states listed as core to HAS.
Would you please help to share the conference information with your members and other interested parties? A mention in your newsletter column, website home page and Facebook pages will all help raise awareness about this event.
We also will be taking copies of conference registration forms to local bee clubs to help make it easier for beekeepers to sign up.
Conference registration is $100 for three days or $40 per day per person. After June 15, conference registration is $150 for three days and $55 per day. On site dorm accommodations, meals and evening events are extra.
Walk-ins are welcome but they will not be able to register for campus dorms or get other campus-related amenities after June 15. www.heartlandbees.org/register-today
