exerpt from the WAS website...

was1"The 36th Annual Conference of the Western Apicultural Society will take place mainly  in the University Center of the University of Montana, Missoula.

The WAS Conference will be nested in a number of other events happening at the same time, or within days, including the 2nd International Workshop on Hive and Bee Monitoring, a "Color Run" (about 2,000 runners?), and the Missoula Honey Harvest Festival.  The WAS Conference will have a wide variety of speakers, on topics such as latest bee research from the U.S. and Canada; bee diseases; pesticides.  Broadening out, there will be presentations on climate change; native and urban plants for honey bees and native pollinators; and encouraging the use of locally grown crops and practicing sustainability in crop production.

The President's Message contains much more information on various aspects of the program, which is not yet finalized.  So return to the "Conference" link from time to time for updates.

This would be a good time to consider lodging for the Conference.  The Doubletree by Hilton Hotel might be the best bet.  It is a full-service hotel (Finn and Porter Restaurant, free shuttle from and to the Missoula airport, etc.) within walking distance of the campus.  The hotel address is 100 Madison Street, Missoula, MT.  Phone: (406) 728-3100.  The other, newer hotels, are on the opposite side of town.  They are too far away to walk to the campus and parking on campus is extremely limited."
