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.

There will be one Hobbyist level SC and 2 tracks of a Sideliner Short Course. The presenters will include Larry Connor, author and Wicwas Press Publisher, David Tarpy, No. Carolina State University, Maryann Frazier of Penn State University, Clarence Collison of Mississippi State University, John Skinner of University of Tennessee and many more. Full schedule is now available for the Hobbyist Short Course and the Sideliner Short Course.

The EAS Conference will begin on Wednesday and extend through Friday afternoon. There will be dual tracks of presentations in the AM and a host of workshops to select from in the Afternoon. Bees will be on site. Speakers include James Tew, Ohio State University, our Hambleton and student award winners, Jeff Pettis, USDA, Dennis vanEngelsdorp, Penn Dept Ag, and other renown bee researchers, apiculturists, Master beekeepers and beekeeping experts from near and far. Full program will be posted in Fall 2006 to this website.

The EAS Conference is about Fun too. We will have a Honey/Bee Products Competitive Show, the popular Honey Exchange, a Bee Bawl social [you need to wear something "bee" to be included – prizes for top bee apparel items], our popular BBQ with auction following [many unique one-of-a-kind Bee Items will be featured], and our closing Banquet and Awards ceremony. Meet and get to know the beekeepers in your state or region and the authors you read in the bee journals. EAS is one of the largest, and we think the bee-friendliest conference the entire year.

We are hard at work improving on past Short Courses and Conferences. If you have attended before you won’t want to miss this one – if you have never attended you are in for a treat. YOU WON’T BE DISAPPOINTED!! On behalf of the Delaware beekeeper hosts, the University of Delaware and EAS let us say WELCOME – we want to SEE YOU at EAS 2007 in DELAWARE.
