We welcome beekeepers to the GBA fall meeting on September 22-24,  2022. Our fall conference is proudly sponsored by the following vendors: Pigeon Mountain Trading Company, Blue Ridge Honey Company, Rossman Apiaries, Mann Lake and Dadant. We encourage our members to support these companies with your business both at the conference and in pre-conference orders to save on shipping.

This fall, we will feature guest speakers, Melanie Kirby, Marina Marchese, Dr. Samuel Ramsey,  Dr.  Mohammed Alburaki, and Dr. Lewis Bartlett,  

Expanding our knowledge through national and international speakers is a wonderful opportunity for us at GBA, we will also keep our interests local with a lineup of familiar keynote speakers and breakout sessions with Bill Dunn, Victor Halbgewachs, Cindy Hodges, David Holloman and Linda Tillman.

Below you'll find a schedule at a glance to allow you to see what speakers and topics will be presented on each day.  Click here to view entire program for the conference, including all of the events.  

The GBA Board of Directors meets at 4:30 PM on Thursday, Sept 22. 

The actual conference begins on Friday, September 23. We are meeting at the Ramsey Conference Center in Gainesville, GA. Registration will have your lunch  selections and the option for the catered dinner on Friday evening, featuring Bobby Chassion as our guest speaker.

Registration is $80 for members and $95 for nonmembers. Beginning September 16, registration will be $95 for everyone. We are offering a one day registration fee of $50. Beginning September 16, a one day registration will be $60.

Hotel details will also be available soon. There are a number of hotels/motels in the conference center area within a four or five mile radius.

All activities of the conference will take place at the Ramsey Conference Center.

One of the features of the GBA Fall Conference is the fall honey show. To see the categories and rules for the honey show, click here. Enter often in many categories! The honey show is only open to current dues paid members of GBA who attend the conference.

If you'd like to join us as a new member, click here. Once you have joined the organization, you can come back here and register for the conference at the member rate! As a nonmember registrant, you cannot enter the honey show, but if you join now, you can also enter the fall honey show.

If you are already a member and want to pay your dues for the next year as many of us like to do with the fall meeting registration, visit your member profile page when you have completed your registration and renew your membership. If you don't do that at this time, you will be sent a membership renewal reminder at the end of your membership year.

The officer election is held at the fall meeting. Members must have their dues paid up to date to vote in the election. If you are not sure when your dues should be paid, check on your personal profile page.

The nonmember rate is $95 per person, and entitles you to a one year membership, beginning the month after the September meeting. You'll get the GBA newsletter as our gift to you for the next year–we hope we will intrigue you enough to want to remain a member of our great GBA organization. 

Refund policy: If you cancel by September 16, you may receive a refund of your registration fee. If you cancel after September 16, you will receive a refund of your registration minus $30 to cover the prepaid lunches and other costs. If you signed up for the dinner, you will receive a refund minus $55 for lunches and the dinner reserved for you.

Welcome, everyone! We are going to have a great fall conference and look forward to everyone's participation.
