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.
