EAS is actively planning a safe and educational conference for 2021. The conference would be 3 days and include master beekeeper testing. At this time, there will not be a honey show. The venue is a large venue with adequate room for social distancing.


 EAS will hold  a three-day conference on August 11 – 13th  at the Paroquet Springs Conference Centre, Shepherdsville, KY with a conference theme of “Bee Connected”.

Shepherdsville, KY is approximately 20 minutes from two airports in Louisville, KY.   The chosen conference site can accommodate 1000 participants, but we are limiting the event to 300 participants in order to maintain social distancing in the main presentation hall. 

At this time no EAS social events are planned, other than an outdoor barbecue, awards, and auction on the evening of Friday, August 13th. There are many activities, restaurants and hotels in the area.  The upcoming Journal will have more details.  

Registration will open to all current members by early May.  There will be no walk-in registrations.  Please keep in mind that this is a three day event for a smaller group of attendees.  Masks indoors will be mandatory.  If at all possible please get a vaccine before coming.  We want to hold a safe, educational, fun event.  There will be Master Beekeeping Testing, an Apiary track and presentations by interesting speakers scheduled for each day.

Please make sure your membership is current NOW  so that you will receive notice of when registration opens  

Stay well and I hope to see in Kentucky !
