We have important information to present and critical topics to decide. Many clubs have elected new representatives and we need your help to get the word out. We can’t do this without local bee club representation!

All KSBA Local Association contacts should receive a calendar invitation with a link to the video conference.  The meeting is on the KSBA calendar with all the details. Update your local association contact information if you do not receive a calendar invitation with the meeting details.
