MSBA Meetings are Free and the Public is Welcome

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.
