Our association holds meetings on the second Monday of each month from 6:00pm to 8:00pm in person and online. Meetings are open to anyone. We spend the first 30 minutes taking care of any association business, like hearing updates from the Board of Directors and Chairs, and taking membership votes on board decisions. Each meeting then has a speaker or special topic of interest to beekeepers. Meetings are meant to be educational and an opportunity for mentorship and discussion with fellow beekeepers.
