MBA has reserved a block of rooms at the Kellogg Center which are available on a first-come-first-served basis. Normal rates at the Kellogg Center range from $125 to $162 per night. Mention that you are with the MBA conference and the room is available for $86 per night (single or double). Plus applicable fees, state and local taxes.
If you are planning to stay at the Kellogg Center, then we suggest that you make your reservations early.
Meals can be obtained at the Kellogg Center’s State Room, but early reservations are recommended. Also, the Brody Complex Cafeteria is available directly across the street from the Kellogg Center. The cafeteria is definitely not what you remember it to be back in the days you were attending college. Reliable reports have this cafeteria to be very reasonably priced, with very good food and it is certainly convenient.
Schedule of Events:
New this year, we will be organizing the classes and break-out sessions along “tracks”. For example, there will be a track specifically oriented toward beginning beekeepers and another targeted at the intermediate and advanced beekeepers. The content of most tracks will be repeated on both days (particularly the beginner’s track), as well as some other classes scheduled as resources permit.
Click here for a list of classes.
Please note: If you want a list of classes, please print ahead of time and bring it with you. Only a limited number of copies will be available at the conference.

Vendors will be located in the Lincoln room. The vendors are always a very popular event. You can see what’s new in beekeeping and purchase equipment and supplies for the upcoming season. Most vendors will bring items to the conference for sale and some are accepting pre-conference orders (you save on shipping!). Please support our vendors, as they help make the spring conference possible.
As of this posting, vendors currently committed to attend are…
Bee Natura LLC & Bee Net
Wracan and Son Honey
S&Bee Honey Containers
Golden Harvest Apiaries
Bee Natura LLC & Bee Net
Northern Bee, LLC
As before, there will be a silent auction to raise funds for the MBA. Items will be on display outside the Lincoln (vendor) Room. If you have an item(s) that you wish to donate, then please contact Dean or Lois Cross at 517-694-9619. Bid early, bid often, bid high!
Putting on the conference is a lot of work and we can always use volunteers to help us along. We can use help with a short setup on Thursday evening, handing out material in the classes and general session, assistance with at-the-door registration and post-conference evaluation. Even if you only have a short time available, any help is greatly appreciated. Contact Steve Tilmann, MBA Treasurer.
