Duties of the Table Officer positions are in our bylaws on our website under “About Us”. Regional Reps generally facilitate communication between Table Officers and members in their regions, such as keeping in touch with their regional beekeeper groups, joining some executive meetings, and providing written reports for each issue of BeesCene. It is recommended that Regional Rep nominations are supported by a vote from the region. CLICK HERE for further details on the role of our Regional Reps.
