There were over 760 attendees from around the country, with approximately 11 Vermont beekeepers who made the trip down to West Chester.
Mike Palmer and Bill Mares were both presenters at this year's conference. Mike was a featured speaker for several workshops, panel discussions and bee yard presentations.
While at the conference the Vermont beekeepers enjoyed wonderful and engaging presentations helping to educate us on many topics, ranging from, how to set up your honey house to disease identification in the lab, and dissecting honey bees using microscopes. Attending this year's conference workshops was a wonderful experience and a great educational opportunity.
