We need your help getting ready for the Annual NCBA Beginning Beekeeping Class!
To any of our members interested in passing along the love and skills of beekeeping 101 at the annual January NCBA Beginning Beekeeping Class there will be an organization/planning meeting at 6:00pm, Monday evening, September 29th, at Embassy Suites Hotel in Loveland, at 4705 Clydesdale Parkway. Directions from the Hotel Staff: From the North or South: Take I-25 to the Crossroads Boulevard exit (Exit 259), turn East onto Crossroads Blvd. and turn left (North) onto Clydesdale Parkway. Hotel will be straight ahead after roundabout. Click here for a map. We will meet in the rear of their restaurant/café.
Kristal Domenico will be the chief instructor this year, and is contacting those individuals who helped with the teaching last year. In addition, we need volunteers to:
- Assist with room set-up and take down,
- Meet and greet our students,
- Help with Woodenware demos,
- Refreshments set up and service
- Set-up of auto-visual systems,
- Help with questions during breaks, and other social times, etc. etc.
This 3 session class will be Saturday January 10th, 17th, and 24th, 8:30 to 1:00 at the Pulliam Building in Loveland. We are striving to update the class registration process with online registration and payment, in addition to mail-in. This Class is one of the most important association tools we offer the community to educate new beekeepers in best practice methods. This Class also provides NCBA with the opportunity to acquire new members, who may become active volunteers in the future to keep the group going!!
