Ohio State Beekeepers Associations…beekeeping at its best!


OSBA Fall Conference ~ via Zoom. Talk about a great time, it was like a TV production. The speakers/presentations were amazing and tons of educational information. While their recorded presentation was playing, they were logged in and answering the questions from the attendees. The entire day was recorded and will be broke apart and posted on the OSBA YouTube channel VISIT HERE

Thank you to everyone that attended (200+) and spending the entire day with us. We want your feedback, there will be a survey sent to everyone that attended. Please take a few minutes to fill this out. Hopefully, we will be meeting in person in 2021, but this technology will bring endless possibilities in the future for outreach and new speakers & presentations.
