The state conference will be at the South Broadway Cultural Center. There is event info on the Abqbeeks homepage. Beeks meetings are held at Bosque school (Coors and Montano), should be starting up again in March.
Welcome to the group. My first suggestion would be to start attending the Abq Beeks meetings. Its a great way to meet other beekeepers in the area. The NM Beekeepers conference is the first weekend of Feb and will have tons of great information.
