EAS 2005, Kent State University, Ohio, August 1-5

The Eastern Apicultural Society of North America was established in 1955 with the purpose of promoting honey bee culture, the education of beekeepers, and excellence in bee research. Every summer, EAS conducts its annual conference in one of its 22 member States/Provinces. About 500 people, from around the world, attend this conference every year.

You must be a member of EAS in order to participate in the Short Course, Conference, or other activities. Dues may be paid with your conference or short course registration. Additional membership information is available on this web site.


EAS 2005 Advance registration is closed. Only walk-in registration is available.

Plans are coming together for the EAS 2005 Conference at Kent State University, Ohio for August 1 - 5, 2005. Here are highlights of what the Ohio delegation has been working on.

Honey Show and Honey Exchange By popular demand, the Honey Show is back for 2005. We have reviewed the Honey Show Rules and the 2005 rules have a few minor changes, including the addition of a category for Honey Beer. In addition, we will have our third Honey Exchange. Bring up to three 1 lb. jars of your honey, and exchange them for an equal number of jars brought by others. You will drop off your jars at Registration, everyone's honey will be on display all week, and you can pick up jars to take home on Friday.

Conference Workshops The workshop schedule will provide a plethera of opportunities. We plan to offer so many great workshops that you will wish you could clone yourself to attend them all. Ohio beekeepers and veteran beekeepers from other states will be running many of the workshops. Some of our workshops are continuing from one session to another without interrupting the flow of things. We're doing this becuase some topics and demonstrations just need more time than 45 minutes. These will be flexible - you can come for one session and leave, or stay the whole time or come in the middle. Brian Neuman, one of our Ohio people will be going for two sessions. As will Michael Young and his Encaustic Painting. Michael was a hit with this topic in Maine and we're just going to put him in a room and let him go for two hours. Tony Jadczak and John Grafton, our Ohio inspector will be doing a whole afternoon on diseases. They will be inside for three sessions and outside at the end of the day. There will be so many good speakers and excellent things to see that you will be sorry you can't see them all.
