The MSBA holds two types of meetings, board meetings for elected officers which members are welcome to attend and contribute comments, and general membership meetings featuring presentations by leading beekeepers, scientists, educators, and leaders in the field.
We hold general meetings on Saturdays in February, June, and November of each year. MSBA meetings last a full day, include nationally-known and local speakers, and generally start with refreshments at 8:30 AM and last until 4 PM. Board meetings occur one month in advance of general meetings, and are scheduled for two hours.
On February 11, 2017 at the Howard County Fairgrounds (click on map below for directions), MSBA will convene its 109th Annual Winter Meeting, the busiest of the year! As keynote, MSBA is honored to present reknowned beekeeper, entomologist, teacher, photographer and writer, Dr. Larry Connor. It has been more than a decade since our members have heard from Dr.Connor, who is also the owner and publisher at Wicwas Press.
Vendors will also be present, including Dadant, Mann Lake (pre-order by February 8th for delivery at the meeting), Wicwas Press, and MSBA T-shirt sales, with more expected (stay tuned!)
Maryland State Beekeepers Association Meetings are free and open to the public. No reservations are required. We will be meeting in the Dining Hall as usual. Doors open at 8:00 AM, our program begins at 9:00 AM, and we conclude by 4:00 PM.
