Apimondia 2019

Posted:Fri, Feb 1st, 2019 8:08:52 pm

Apimondia 2019 is being held in Montreal this coming September. It would be very safe to say that it is "the international beekeeping event of the year" and to have it so close to home creates a great opportunity to attend in person. At the recent NSBA AGM, Peter Kwan offered to coordinate a group rate for those interested in attending. You will see in the attached note from Peter that there are significant savings to be had. If Apimondia 2019 are in your fall plans, drop Peter a note directly and take advantage of the discount. - Jena Nicholson. NSBA Coordinator
