EAS 2021 Update – EAS board of Directors accepted an offer by Kentucky to host an in-person EAS conference this summer. The conference will be August 11-13 at the Paroquet Springs Conference Center in Shepherdsville, KY (near Louisville). The conference center holds 1000 people but the EAS conference will be limited to 300 people. The EAS master beekeeper program will be testing but there will be no honey show. The conference schedule will be scaled down considerably. Kind words were extended to the EAS MA committee for all the hard work that went into our planning. We have been offered the slot for 2023.
