2020 ABA Conference returnign to Mountian View

Scenic Mountain View, Arkansas was selected for the next ABA conference. We will once again gather at the Ozark Folk Center State Park for a weekend of honey bees, good food and freinds, and a little bit of that mountain music! The executive board is already working to make plans and book speakers. If you have ideas for presenters or topics you would like to see and hear, please make your voice heard and contact your board representatives!

2019 Fall Beekeeping Conference

The 2019 ABA Fall Conference was held in Bentonville on October 5-6. Honey bee enthsiasts came together and enjoyed two days of presentations on many different topics. Some new executive officers were chosen, and they are already working to make next year's conference a success.

Special thanks to the Benton County Beekeepers Association for their generous donation of $500 to help support the ABA conference this year!

Congratulations to all the winners of our annual Honey Contest!
