The new Kentucky State Beekeepers Association (KSBA) membership form for 2018 has been uploaded to the KSBA website’s membership page. Like in 2017, it the new membership form is a two pages with the second page containing information for KSBA’s Buy Local webpage. If you don’t want to be included on the Buy Local webpage, then you only need to fill out the first page of the membership form.
KSBA’s Buy Local webpage was designed to help the public find KSBA members near them who have honey or other product for sale or who provide services such as swarm and hive removal. So far in 2017, the Buy Local page has been viewed more than 2,000 times. For 2018, we have added pollination services to the list of services listed on the Buy Local page.
KSBA membership runs from January 1 to December 31 each year. Members who are 80 years old or older are granted free membership. Benefits of being a member can be found in the document “Why Join Kentucky State Beekeepers Association?”.
