Cindy Bee - WV


Bee comes by her name honestly as people were once named for the occupation they held. Beekeeping has been in her family for generations. She is past president of the Metro Atlanta Beekeeping Association, was Georgia beekeeper of the year in 2006, and the first female master beekeeper in Georgia. She owned and operated a full-time bee removal business for fourteen years and co-wrote the book Honey Bee Removal, a Step by Step Guide

Bee currently works for the Appalachian Beekeeping Collective in Hinton, West Virginia. She is one of the master beekeepers there and is also a certified educator. Much of her time is spent teaching and mentoring locals who have shown an interest in beekeeping. Bee also helps tend the 800 plus hives in the program. She is an integral part of the wax and honey processing production lines and is deeply committed to the community seed and plant project.

.A national and international speaker, Bee loves teaching beekeeping, working bees, and telling the stories that naturally come with the unusual profession. She has two Master’s degrees in writing and continues to work on a memoir of beekeeping stories.

New for 2019,

The job of recognizing and showcasing presenters is a big one for sure.
At EAS this year you have a choice of over 100 talks!

Add to that the honey show, demonstrations, vendors and you can image it is an undertaking to try to show that information. In previous years this has been painstakingly done by hand. Keystroke by keystroke. A labor of love for sure.

This year we switched to a 'dynamic' presentation. It will allow you to view the information in more ways and allow us to adjust in real time as we add new speakers and more excitement.

We revamped the presentation to use the whole page and larger text so it is easier to absorb.

One thing we really think you will appreciate is the ability to select a personal schedule! You can easily add a speakers talk to a list and have it on your smart device or print it and bring it along. Nice!

'But wait, there's more'.. you can now search on things like 'Honey' or 'Dewey' or 'Varroa' and find any talks that have your search terms.

We are also working with those who are coming to inform to let them add links and information to their information so that you (and they) can have more interaction and share information. It may a little slow to start but it will grow and we are excited to see what it becomes!

This year is version 1.0 and we realize that there is always room for improvement. There are some elements of past that haven't been completed yet (like the tv guide style presentation), but those features are on the list so know that we are working on them.

We welcome your feedback and really hope you enjoy what we hope is a more enjoyable way to see the excitement.
