KSBA Business Meeting to be Held June 3, 2017


KSBA’s summer business meeting will be immediately after Kelley Beekeeping’s field day on June 3, 2017. Kelley Beekeeping is graciously allowing KSBA to use a room in its new training center (formerly the old office building) for our business meeting.

All KSBA members are invited to attend this members-only business meeting. All local associations, please send a representative so we can reach a quorum and make decisions including organizing for the Kentucky State Fair.

Keith Rogers, Kentucky Department of Agriculture Chief of Staff, will be a guest speaker at the KSBA business meeting. He will be talking about honey issues in Kentucky. A draft agenda for the meeting can be found below.

If you are coming for the KSBA business meeting, we encourage you to think about coming early and attending the Kelley Beekeeping’s field day. The field day is a completely separate event hosted by Kelley Beekeeping and is not related to the KSBA business meeting. However, it is sure to be very educational and you can never learn too much about honey bees.
