The Heartland Apicultural Society annual Conference is July 10-12, 2008 at Marshall University in Huntington WV.
We have over 85 presentations/workshops planned for the conference. There will be presentations/worshops for everything from starting to advanced beekeeping. Lecture sessions and hands-on workshops including a 15 hive on-site apiary.

Exhibitors-- Over 25 bee supply dealers, bee quipment Manufacturers, and Book sellers. You may find the item you are looking for and talk to the venders in person.

Food-- The Dining hall has all-you-care -to-eat with several food stations--Seating is 475 so there will be no waiting in line to eat.

Housing---Do the inexpensive dorm rooms--all AC --or stay at a full-service Motel just 1-3 miles from Marshall.

Tentative speakers include Jerry Hayes, Greg Hunt, Dewey Caron, Tom Webster, Jennifer Berry, Bill Ferguson (Ferguson Apiaries-Buckfast Qeeen) and many more good speakers.

Thanks for the update. "no waiting in line" will be nice. That was one of the very few glitches at HAS this summer.

Someone needs to update the heartlandbees website. It's been promising "Check back here soon for photos and video from the event" since about two days after this summer's meeting at KSU.

One of the glitches at HAS 2007 was that fact that there was a kid's conference going on the same time. It made mealtime a real zoo. Marshall University will be between summer terms when HAS 2008 occurs on campus. This should make mealtimes and everything else go a bit smoother! Hope to see you all there July 10-12, 2008 in Huntingotn, West Virginia. -Danno

I just ate at one today...the folks who come could eat at a different great place every meal & never go back to the same place twice! We will also have the 'endless plate' available at the cafeteria. Come and enjoy yourselves! -Danno

Hey danno,

Are there any campgrounds nearby? July 10-12 sounds like a good time to be camping out in WV.

I'd really suggest Foxfire & Beech Fork as two very nice campgrounds. Good luck & we hope to see you next July! -Danno
