Secrets of Successful Beekeeping in Challenging Environments

Welcome to the Registration page for the 2022 Summer Conference.  

It’s really hard to imagine a better theme for these times. Jose Villa and John Gagne are back with us to speak and lead the discussion. The 2022 meeting this summer is being held Saturday, Aug. 27 in-person at the Institute of American Indian Arts (IAIA) in Santa Fe. The day will feature a panel of beekeepers from different parts of the state revealing their “secrets” of successful beekeeping.  The Institute has hives on its campus, so part of the day will be in the field to demonstrate mite washes, queen marking, or comb reading.

Be sure to become a member if you aren’t already. Your membership includes admission to conferences, newsletters, access to past recorded conference talks, and more.  Look for more information on the conference as plans unfold in the next weeks on social media FaceBook and Instagram. Another online auction is also in the works.
