Cornell University -- August 5-9, 2002


The EAS 2002 Committee is getting very excited about the program that is taking shape. As is traditional at EAS, this year's events will start with a 2 1/2 day multi-level short course, followed by a 2 1/2 day conference filled with marvelous speakers, excellent workshops, an annual honey show, a number of tours, excursions, BBQ and a Banquet.

Short Course
Aaron Morris is coordinating the multi-level beekeeping short course this year. The short course will open early Monday morning, August 5, and will run until Noon, Wednesday, August 7. The course will be structured to appeal to both beginning and experienced beekeepers. Details about the short course are now available on-line!

The main conference will start mid-day Wednesday, August 7th, and continue through Friday afternoon, culminating with the awards Banquet Friday evening. The conference consists of symposia and WorkShops on a multitude of topics. The Welcome Social, will be on Wednesday evening sponsored by The Empire State Honey Producers Association.
