The RDBC Executive consists of 5 volunteer positions. One President, one Administrative position, and 3 director positions. Each executive is elected during our annual members general meeting in the spring and holds their position for a 2 year term. Executive duties are spread out across the board. The President position is determined by the the board itself, and the president must have had previous experience on the board before becoming president. Once the 2 year term is up, the executive must stand down for a minimum of one year, to allow for new members to become a part of the board.

I have a little over a dozen hives I keep on a farm north of the city. My Great grandfather moved here from Scotland and was one of the creators of the SBA (Saskatchewan Bee Association). He started down here in the Qu'Apelle Valley and eventually moved to the Nipawin area where I grew up. I spent my youth helping my grandparents and father with their bees. I find it very rewarding to be running bees in the area where my great grandfather started.
I joined the club in 2010, and started with 2 hives. Every year since I have expanded a little more. I enjoy answering bee questions and helping new members out. http://www.hamiltonhoney.ca/

This is my second term on the board and it is sure to bring more adventures and excitement!
Many of you may know me better as Keara Bistretzan. I am a third generation beeper. This summer I married my long time friend and love of my life Justin, who in the course of our dating also discovered his love of beekeeping. We live west of Regina and have kept bees together the last two years. This past winter I experimented making my own lip balm and body butter using our beeswax.
I look forward to seeing you all at club events!
