The people have spoken! The last ABA meeting in Mountain View was a huge success. We had so many people attend that we had to move to a larger auditorium to accommodate everyone. So it was decided to hold the next fall meeting there as well. We have already reserved a date with the Ozark Folk Center, and we'll meet there again on September 23-24, 2022. So mark your calendars and plan to return to scenic Mountain View, Arkansas next year.

The ABA strives to invite interesting and popular guest speakers from around the country to share their ideas and experiences on honey bees and beekeeping with you.

If there is a topic you are interested in, or a speaker you'd like to hear at our conferences, let your officers know!

Some folks at the recent conference asked about how to find a veterinarian willing to diagnose honey bees. The University of Arkansas Division of Agriculture has been helping to train our state's vets since the FDA changed the federal laws on the sale of veterinary antibiotics. You can download the most current Arkansas Veterinary Directory, which is arranged by county.
