Traveling Speaker Program

The OSBA Board is sponsoring a new presentation with the Traveling Speaker Program “Chemical Treatments for Varroa Control“. OSBA covers the majority of the cost for this program. This year (2021) the OSBA Board & Traveling Speaker Committee are offering each Ohio club/association up to (2) free presentations. There is a limited budget put towards these free presentations. It will be awarded on first-come, first-serve participation until the budget is spent. After these free presentations are done, there will be a nominal fee to reserve a Traveling Speaker at a cost of $35.00 for OSBA Affiliates and $50.00 for non-affiliates.
