About the organizer

In 2019 WASBA restarted its annual conerence, drawing over 300 people to Eastern Washington on a cold, snowy February. In 2020 we quickly adapted to the COVID-19 restrictions and hosting a Virtual Conference with over 200 attendees from the US and Canada! The 2021 Conference was rescheduled and on October 1-2, 2022 WASBA hosted it's first "JamborBEE Conference" with over 100 in-person and virtual attendees, overnight camping, food trucks, and a super fun Dessert Auction and Live Auction at the WSU Honey Bee & Pollinator Research Facility in Othello, Washington! The 2023 Pacific Northwest Beekeeping Conference is highly anticipated and we expect 400-500 attendees to join us on the West Side of the mountains at the Olympic Hotel at Capitol Lake on Saturday, October 7th and Sunday, October 8th, 2023`!
