Honey Show

Also in conjunction with the Congress is a Honey Show. Details are on the website:

You are encouraged to put together some entries so that we have a good display. A honey show always attracts the media so we need to have a good array of entries.

Congratulations to Trevor Weatherhead AM

In the Australia Day Honours list published on Friday 26 January 2018 Trevor Weatherhead was appointed as a Member in the General Division of the Order of Australia.

We congratulate Trevor on this award which is well deserved.

Trevor has been involved in biosecurity issues affecting our industry since the 1980’s. He has also been involved with AHBIC, and its predecessor the Federal Council of Australian Apiarist’s Association (FCAAA) for many years and also served as President of the Queensland Beekeepers Association.

Trevor has acknowledged that this award would not be possible if not for the help given by members of our industry.

I believe that we should also offer thanks to Marion, his wife, for the support and work she has given which has allowed Trevor to be able to carry out the duties for our industry.

So once again congratulations Trevor.

Australian Honey Bee Industry Council Inc.
