Re: 45th Annual AHPA convention vers. North American Beekeeping Conference & Tr
If the AHPA ever held a conference east of the Mississippi in an East Coast State I would like to attend one of their conferences. But I don't think that is very likely. From what I have heard the AHPA membership is made up mostly of Almond Pollinators and folks from west of the Mississippi. To me the cost of travelling great distances is a turn off.
I attended the ABF Mtng in Orlando a few years ago. But I was already better than half way there, being as I had bees in SC. Last January I went to Hershey to attend the ABF and left a cpl days before it was over.
