The Eastern Apicultural Society Conference for 2021 will take place August 11-13 at the Paroquet Springs Conference Center in Sherpherdsville, KY!
The annual conference will look a bit different this year, but with the same high level of educational expertise and fun as in previous years. EAS' usual five day conference will be condensed to three days. There will be Master Beekeeping Testing, hands-on outdoor Apiary learning and presentations by interesting speakers scheduled for each day. The social events include an outdoor barbecue, awards, and auction on the evening of Friday, August 13th. At this time, there will not be a honey show. The upcoming EAS Journal will have more details.
Shepherdsville, KY is approximately 20 minutes from the two main airports in Louisville, KY. There are many activities, restaurants and hotels in the area. Paroquet Springs Conference Center can accommodate 1000 participants, but we are limiting the event to 300 participants in order to maintain social distancing in the main presentation hall.
Registration is now open to all current EAS members. Since we are limiting attendance to 300, there will be no walk-in registrations for the event. Masks indoors will be mandatory. If at all possible please get a vaccine before coming. We want to hold a safe, educational, fun event.
Stay well and I hope to see in Kentucky !
