Next Saturday, 27th March, will be the WBKA virtual Convention. Rather than cancelling the Convention for a second year, due to covid restrictions, the WBKA Events Team have organised a virtual event which we hope Association members will fully support. Please circulate these details widely and ask all your beekeeping friends and acquaintances to visit the link to the convention webpages on the WBKA website. The attached flyer gives all the details of how to register for the speakers and to join the drop in chat sessions during the day. Details of how to join these are also on the website along with our virtual trade show. The event is totally free and open to anyone whether or not they are WBKA members.
Our speakers will cover beekeeping in Ireland (Paul O’Brien), which flowers bees choose to visit (Dr Laura Jones) and why some colonies are resistant to varroa (Prof. Stephen Martin). Our final webinar is the ever popular Question and Answer session where the audience can question a panel of expert beekeepers on any beekeeping topics. These sessions all require attendees to preregister (links are given on the attached flyer or can be found on the convention webpages).
Also on the day are drop in sessions that you do not need to preregister for – just use the link at the appropriate time. During these sessions you can talk to members of the WBKA team. The 11.45 to 12.45 session is your opportunity to ask about practical assessments such as the Basic Husbandry etc. At 10.15 and 12.45 there are more general sessions where you can ask about or suggest anything that is relevant to the WBKA.
