New President for Beekeepers
Don Bell was elected President of the National Beekeepers
Association at their National Conference and AGM in

years as commercial apiarists.

to continuing the fine work of his predecessor and aims to
continue the consolidation of the NBA started by his
predecessor, Richard Hatfield.
Mr. Bell replaces Richard
Hatfield who has retired after one term as President.
