  1. Audrey,

    I’m a new participant to the world of beekeeping. Frankly, I’m a greenhorn. I am also like a sponge trying to absorb knowledge. I reside north of Jackson in Bentonia, MS. Two days ago I mailed my application and check to the MS Beekeeping Assn.

    I look forward to going to the convention next month. Do you know if there is a cost associated with my attendance? Also, what should I bring with me?

    1. Hi James,

      Welcome to the fantastic world of honey bee management! The convention registration form is available for download under the Resources tab. There is a registration fee, and hotel information is also provided in the “Letter of Invitation” that accompanies the registration form. The letter is currently posted in our blog, but I am going to make it available under Resources as well. You will not need to bring PPE to this convention, just a pad and pen (or iPad) and an eager mind!
