President's Message

Greetings, friends,


It's The Most Wonderful Time of The Year! All of us board members want to send out our best wishes to everyone at this Holiday Season. 

I truly believe that this is not only The Most Wonderful Time of The Year because of the Holidays but because all my work is done for a few weeks and I have a chance to slow down and reflect back on this year. Even though work with beekeeping never really ends I enjoy the time that I am not in a hurry chasing deadlines, or sunsets and sunrises as I call it. 

With long winter hours I take this time to catch up on equipment maintenance, cleaning up messes, and getting organized with things I just never had time to get done. Buying supplies and preparing for spring will keep you ahead of the game, and chances are supply stores have sales to help minimize the hit on your bank account. 

As a reminder, our 2020 Beekeeper's Convention is coming up in February. Our keynote speakers are David Burns and Richard Homer, along with a list of other speakers to help keep us on the cutting edge. Click here for the full agenda. You are able to pre-register on the convention link to save time. Don't forget to also get your seat at the banquet, it will be the best yet and seating is limited.

See you all soon,
Jared Taylor
UBA President
