The Association holds regular education meetings at Llysfasi College, Ruthin Road, Ruthin, Denbighshire LL15 2LB.
One evening a month (Mondays) speakers are invited to address the members. These meetings are very popular and are a great opportunity to keep up with the latest in beekeeping and to meet other local beekeepers.
During the Summer months, apiary practical meetings take place at the Association apiary opposite Llysfasi College. These provide a chance to learn from experienced beekeepers.
