AAPA, American Association of Professional Apiculturists, is an organization consisted of professors, state apiarists, scientists and students who all study and work with honey bees (Apis mellifera).
AAPA organizes a yearly conference, the American Bee Research Conference (ABRC) which is usually in Dec or Jan, often together with other professional beekeepers (American Bee Federation, or American Honey Producers Association), or by itself.
