 Below find my invitation to NJBA summer meeting. I would encourage those of you who are not members to consider joining this year more than any other. NJ is preparing to provide 300K for bee research as they are a mamber of MAAERC. At this meeting a spokesperson from Penn State University will talk on the latest CCD info. As close to the horses mouth any of us are likely to get. Memebership is nominally priced, and it gets you discounts on ABJ and BC, and Rutger's Short Bee Course. Southern branch has an extractor to use as well.

Any questions please PM me as well.

Sure would like it if you made the association aware that Beemaster Forums are always looking for CLUBS and ASSOCIATIONS to join up and we can CREATE USER GROUPS where they have many features to communicate easily among themselves.

MEMBERS: please do us all a favor and mentions our forum to your club members, maybe through club bulletin, etc. as we grow it only makes our learning and fellowship more interesting and deverse. Just a thought: if you enjoy it here, I'm sure other members in your clubs probably would too :)

I would be happy to do so. I already advise people to look the forum up and many have. Not sure anyone has joined though. I'll have to follow-up on that one.

I mention this forum at every beekeeper's meeting I go to.  So far I'm the only one from my association that is a member.

I also have mentioned it and it just falls on deaf ears and i get the response, " I can barely manage to turn on my computer".  What gives, I guess they will never know what they missed.
