TEC SMART is a lovely facility designed for classes and conferences. Our lectures, lunch, vendor booths and Bee-Cup fundraiser will all be in one building, all on the first floor. It is easy to get to, close to exit 12 of I-87.
Seminar Cost: $ 38, or $ 33 for current SABA members. Last year, we had almost a full house, and it may be necessary this year to take only pre-registered people (maybe no walk-ins).
A SABA membership runs the calendar year, and costs $15 for one year, $60 for 5 years, $150 for Life.
Box Lunch from Panera Bread: $12. (½ sandwich, side salad, big cookie, chips, drink. Vegetarian lunches will be available.) You must pre-order to get a Panera Bread box lunch. You may instead bring a bag lunch, use the vending machines, or drive 1.5 miles to a diner, KFC, Subway, Taco Bell, McDonald’s, Hannaford, etc. We will have a one hour lunch break.
Bee-Cup Auction: Many donations will be given away in a fundraiser for SABA. This fundraiser helps support the club by bringing in guest speakers, and it also supplements the Wolf-Lounsbury Youth Beekeeper Award, an annual award of a new hive, bees and gear, with instruction, given to a youth of Middle or High School age.
Vendors: Multiple major beekeeping suppliers will have booths at the Seminar. You may make pre-orders.
