The IHPA Conference and Annual Meeting is our yearly opportunity to get together and discuss the wonders as well as mysteries of beekeeping.  This meeting is open to anyone interested in beekeeping or honeybees.  We have a variety of guest speakers from across the United States come to speak on their expertise in the beekeeping world.

For current beekeepers this is a great time to hear what is new in beekeeping or ask questions of those with a greater number of years’ experience.  Those who are thinking about getting started in beekeeping will have numerous chances to ask, ‘What’s it like to keep bees?”  There will be no shortage of answers!  Beekeepers love to share the stories, fun, and enjoyment they have found in beekeeping.

2016 Conference and Annual Meeting Speakers include the following:
James Tew, Jennifer Berry, Charlotte Hubbarb, Andy Joseph, Andy Hemken, the Iowa Honey Queen and more!
