2017 American Bee Research Conference Call for Presentations


The American Association of Professional Apiculturists, Canadian Association of Professional Apiculturists and the Apiary Inspectors of America are joining the 2017 North American Beekeeping Conference & Tradeshow in Galveston, TX on January 12-13, 2016 (all day Thursday and Friday). The full conference is a joint meeting of the American Beekeeping Federation, American Honey Producers Association and the Canadian Honey Council, so it is sure to be a busy and productive venture!


Registration and presentation submission opens September 24! Titles and abstracts must be submitted by November 1, 2016. If you have research to share involving the genus Apis, we welcome your submissions. Abstracts are required at the time of registration. Due to the combined meeting, we may have to select oral presentations, so access to abstracts will help with this process. Posters are also encouraged, and we will have an evening poster session. We are looking forward to an outstanding meeting full of exciting talks and poster presentations, headlined by our keynote speakers, Jeff Pettis and Steve Pernal.

Please note that the deadline for applying for the AAPA Scholarship Award is November first. Please contact Ann Harman at ahworkb@aol.com if you are interested.


Pre-registration is required for those who wish to present and for AAPA members who want to enjoy a catered lunch during our business meeting on Friday, January 13.

Please pass this information to your students and any other interested parties. Feel free to contact us with any questions that you may have.


We hope you’ll be able to join us in Galveston!
