As a reminder, PRE-REGISTRATION IS DUE DEC 4. If you want to attend the American Beekeeping Federation Conference & Tradeshow prior to the start of ABRC (so on Mon-Wed), then you MUST PRE-REGISTER. This is a enforced by the beekeeping convention organizers and this is the only way that registering for ABRC also covers registration for the beekeeping conference.

Pre-registration and RSVP-ing for the AAPA catered lunch business meeting on Thursday is also required by Dec 4. Those that do not RSVP for the lunch are welcome at the business meeting but will not be able to have the provided lunch. It’ll be a salad, soup, sandwich lunch with vegetarian options. Please RSVP for the lunch by e-mailing Mike at michael.simonefinstrom(at)ars.usda.gov!
