Alabama Beekeepers Association 2013 Annual Meeting

This year the convention will be held in the same facility as 2009 through 2012.   This location is fantastic.    It is a large, new meeting facility.     There is  more room than ever before with room to grow.  Jeff has a great lineup of speakers and is working on getting other.    Please check back here as plans shape up for the latest developments.

There will be topics for everyone whether you are an experienced beekeeper, beginning beekeeper, or non-beekeepers.  There will be plenty to eat and plenty to do, plus the fellowship will be great.

Orders placed with attending suppliers will be delivered to the convention with no shipping charge (you must be there to pick them up or arrange to have someone pick them up).    Place your orders timely and request delivery at the Alabama Beekeepers Association annual convention.    Their trucks and trailers fill up pretty fast and once full, no more orders can be taken from that supplier for the 2013 convention delivery so be sure and place your order as early as possible.  Check your normal delivery costs, it may be that your convention delivery savings will cover your convention expenses!

Make your plans now to attend.  You do not want to miss this meeting.  We will have another “Beekeeper of the Year” award.    The Beekeeper of the Year is recommended by the members and final selection will be made by the President with help as needed from the Board of Directors.   So get your recommendations in to the President ASAP.   

This year we will have many door prizes and one Grand Prize.

Plus, as always, we will be feeding you throughout the entire two days at no additional cost.    ie... The registration fee includes the convention and food.    You can’t beat that for the price.

We currently have rooms blocked off at The Sleep Inn & Suites for the Alabama Beekeepers Association at a rate of $60 per night plus tax.    You must reserve these rooms by August 26 to receive this rate.    Bonnie spoke with Amerika Brown at the hotel.   This is for the nights of September 26 and 27th.     Most likely we will have similar deals worked with other motels in the area so be sure and check back as convention time approaches for the latest motel deals.    When you make your reservations and check in remind them that you are with the Alabama Beekeepers Associations to take advantage of any deals available to us.
