Dear fellow beekeepers,
I hope you have had a successful beekeeping year and that you still have beautiful memories of a very successful IMYB meeting in France. A huge thank you once again to the organizational team for their hard work in hosting this wonderful event! You can find all the photos from this event, along with press releases and our organizer’s report on our website, www.icyb.cz. We would love it if you shared this information with other beekeepers in your country to keep expanding our global community! Similarly, if you have written any articles you would like us to post, please send them through as soon as possible so we can add them.
I look forward to seeing you all again later this year in Slovakia, where we will be joined by young beekeepers from several, previously unrepresented countries, such as Oman, Canada, Ghana or Zimbabwe! That is one of the reasons why we think this meeting will surely be full of new and pleasant surprises.
I am also very excited to announce that we are now taking applications to host the 2021 IMYB! We call for organizers of 12th IMYB meeting in 2021. We would like to ask candidates to sign up by end of April 2019 on firstname.lastname@example.org. After receiving your email, we will contact you and discuss your idea of organizing the meeting. In 2021, we expect about 50-60 participating countries (each country is represented by 3 young beekeepers under 18 and up to 2 adults). The duration of meeting is expected to be 5 days and 4 nights. Detailed information and videos about IMYB meetings can be found on our website www.icyb.cz.
Meantime, we are also working on new educational materials for young beekeepers – and we are happy to share with you the new series of videos on how to lead a beekeeping club - http://icyb.cz/blog/2019/01/18/new-series-videos-support-young-beekeeping-leaders/ .
Last but not least, we still have few free spots for IMYB 2019, so if you haven’t registered yet, please, do so as soon as possible while capacity lasts.
All the best with your beekeeping endeavors!
