HAS
« on: March 23, 2009, 10:35:20 PM »

Anyone have a link to updated info on HAS for 2009. I could only find info from 2008 on the site that came up.

Dates, cost, location, speakers?

Thank you.

HAS tends to wait to nearly the last minute before releasing any details beyond location and dates. It seems the last couple years it's been June before I've seen the first tentative speaker lists & schedules. So, other than Oberlin, Ohio on July 9-11, there's not any "official" info out yet.

Thanks.

I was interested in EAS this year as they touted "Natural Beekeeping" and "keeping bees with less chemicals", as the main topic last year when making arrangements for this year. But speakers have been cut (people like M. Palmer, etc.), and the direction of the event has shifted. I have heard from others that it has become a symposium on Russian Bees and one huge marketing ploy for the Russian breeders association. (you can read about a precursor in the last Bee Culture copy) Not that it's bad or anything wrong with it, but I had thought there was a different format this year, and thought it was something I was looking forward too. Throw in the cost of the short course and conference ($320), daily room rates of $150 per night (x's 5), and other costs, and the HAS is looking better and better.

I am not sure how many attend both EAS and HAS. For me, I will choose one not due to money as much as time constraints. One is in New York, and the other in Ohio. Makes no difference to me in travel. I'm looking for the best value, and the topics of interest that are more appealing to me personally.

HAS would benefit greatly if they would get their information out there a little sooner, so people can make informed decisions.

Anyone connected to HAS? Anyone listening to what I'm saying.... Wink

Hi

I spoke at HAS last year and was impressed at the group: extremely nice people. Meeting beekeepers from different areas is always exciting and valuable. I would recommend attending HAS if one could.

I'm speaking at EAS this year, and I have NOTHING to do with Russian bees, You should know that Mike  Smiley
