WASBA has added a fantastic social event that takes place after the conference.

We’ll gather for appetizers, mead and social time beginning at 6:30 PM at the Mason Jar, located at 101 F Street in downtown Cheney.

The Bee Girl will be joining us along with other speakers so you will have an opportunity to visit it with them one-on-one.

    On the calendar, looking forward to coming

  2. Russell Deptuch says:

    I appreciate the effort WSBA to reenergizing the annual beekeepers conference, but unfortunately due to the distance of travel and the short duration of the meeting I will not be able to attend. I am and have been a member of Mt. Baker Beekeepers Association for many years and have always attended previous conferences.

    I hope there will be a great number of attendees and please consider a late summer two day conference somewhere on the middle of the state. The passes could be crazy in early February.

    Thanks, Russell Deptuch
