Plans are progressing for our first-ever Bee-zaar to be held Friday, December 6, 2013. A combination Sustainability Fair and Marketplace for Natural and Hand-Crafted Goods, it is shaping up to be an entertaining and worthwhile event for all attendees. As this is our first foray into this kind of event, we are still working out the details. We have assembled a great team to pull this together – and our team leaders could really use your support, particularly the evening of the event (see below).
We are making space available for members who want to sell their honey and are able to participate in making the evening a success. If you plan to sell your honey at the event, please consider donating a cup of honey to the tasting table, and perhaps also some to use as door prizes. Let us know if you will, so we can plan accordingly – email firstname.lastname@example.org.

NCBA Bee-zaar Photo Contest
This year we have planned our annual Photo Contest to occur around the December Bee-zaar. The rules are simple – email up to three beekeeping-related photographs to firstname.lastname@example.org by November 30th, and we’ll post them on the NCBA website. You’ll have an opportunity to vote on your favorites between December 1-5, and we’ll announce winners at the Bee-zaar! If your photos don’t email well, just send a message and we’ll work out another way.
