Each year, NEKBA conducts a Beekeepers' program for folks interested in the wonderful world of beekeeping. This is a great way to learn more about beekeeping and meet many talented and "seasoned" beekeepers in the area that are known and recognized at the local, regional, and national levels.  Levels for beginning, intermediate, and advanced beekeepers.

Professor, Bioligist Tom Seeley, author of the best selling book Honeybee Democracy and The Five Habits of Highly Effective Honeybees (and What We Can Learn From Them).  

The Five Habits of Highly Effective Hives (review)

"We can learn from the bees the following five guidelines for achieving a high collective IQ:

1. Remind the group’s members of their shared interests and foster mutual respect, so they work together productively. 

2. Explore diverse solutions to the problem, to maximize the group’s likelihood of uncovering an excellent option.

3. Aggregate the group’s knowledge through a frank debate. 

4. Minimize the leader’s influence on the group’s thinking. 

5. Balance interdependence (information sharing) and independence (absence of peer pressure) among the group’s members."

and Marion Ellis, Ph.D., Professor of Entomology & Researcher at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln
