WAS Conference

The CSBA is pleased to host the Western Apicultural Society annual conference. The conference will be held in Bee-utiful Boulder on October 1-3, 2015 at the Millennium Hotel. Colorado is stunning in the fall. The elk are bugling in Rocky Mountain National Park, the aspens are turning, the days are warm and the nights are crisp.

The conference theme is “Putting the Bee in Boulder” and we are indeed! The first two days will be “Healthy Bee” and will focus on topics supporting bee health. The final day is “Bee Healthy” and is focused on bees and human health/interaction and will be a community celebration featuring the ABF’s “Kids and Bees” program as well as Matt Camper from CSU performing a “bee beard” (or two)! We have reached out to CU to change their “Be Boulder” theme to “Bee Boulder” for the occasion as well as to encourage CU students to support the conference.

The chosen weekend has also been declared Homecoming weekend by CU and we are absolutely delighted to have secured our lodging early on. The secured room rate is $159 per night. Rooms without the WAS rate are $249–if you can find them at all! PLEASE NOTE THAT ROOM PRICING IS VALID UNTIL AUGUST 31, 2015!!!!! Use code WAS2015 to make the reservation. [Read more…]
