HCBA General Meeting Information:

Tuesday April 14, 2020, 7:00 PM  using WebEx Conferencing 

Join us for our April meeting!

We hope you will join us for our first virtual General Meeting. WebEx is free, but you will need to register to use the tool, download, and install the interface. Go here for information on how to do that prior to the meeting.


We'll have our regular HCBA business update and seasonal Q&A session, but the Q&A session will have a bit of a twist. Please post any questions you have on our April Q&A page. We'll use the posted questions for our Q&A.


(Note: you have to be registered on this site to use the forum, so follow the instructions here if you've not yet done that.)    

Our guest speakers will be Cybil Preston, the Chief Apiary Inspector for Maryland, and Kelly Kulhanek, a Ph.D. candidate whose doctoral work focuses on honey bee health on a nationwide scale.


Cybil will talk about the invasive species known as the Spotted Lantern Fly and what we can do about it.

Kelly will speak to us about the effectiveness of survey-derived beekeeping management best practices. She will also touch on the results of a study tracking the transmission of Varroa between apiaries.

Both of these talks promise to be informative and interesting, so we hope to 'see' you at the WebEx meeting!

HCBA members will be sent a link to join the WebEx meeting.

Instructions for how to use WebEx can be downloaded here.
