It is time for the Annual General Meeting. As you are aware, a lot of planning has resulted in a much more efficient process with nominations for positions made well in advance.

After the AGM, our Royal Canberra Show Chief Steward, Lyn Shiels, will give us some hints on preparing entries for the show.

After Beekeepers corner, member Micah Wood will tell us about his beekeeping experience in Afica.

As a Peace Corps volunteer in The Gambia, Micah lived in a rural community where he worked with surrounding communities and Kiang West National Park to promote beekeeping through apiary management. He developed a Gambian beekeeping training manual and a tourist center with a glass bee hive. As the Country Manager of BEECause, he developed swarm catching techniques, designed new hives, implemented harvesting and marketing practices, and taught pest management strategies. He is excited to share his adventures in The Gambia with you and discuss the fascinating world of African beekeeping.
