Our club is affiliated with the Oregon State Beekeepers Association. I strongly encourage you to join or, if you’re already a member, to renew your membership in the ORSBA. It is well worth the cost of membership. For example, the ORSBA has a great message board and a Master Beekeeper certification program for ORSBA members. Also, the ORSBA annual meeting will be November 1-3 in Seaside. Here is the link to the group’s website: www.orsba.org
Another beekeeping group is the Western Apicultural Society. WAS represents beekeepers in the Western US and Canada, primarily hobbyists and sideliners. Their annual meeting is October 4-6 in Seattle, in conjunction with the annual meeting of the Washington State Beekeepers Association.
