Traveling Speaker Program

Traveling Speaker LogoThe OSBA Board is sponsoring a new presentation with the Traveling Speaker Program “Marketing your Honey“. This new educational topic will discuss how bees make comb and how beekeepers can manage that comb. OSBA covers the majority of the cost of this program. This year there will be a nominal fee to reserve a Traveling Speaker at a cost of $45.00 for OSBA Affiliates and $60.00 for non-affiliates. This program is only available to Ohio Beekeeping Clubs. Other organizations seeking to provide beekeeping-related programs are encouraged to contact the bee clubs in their areas.
