When signing up or renewing your MBA membership on line, you can indicate if you are a member of a local bee club and, if so, which one. MBA has a policy of granting a “$5 per head” stipend to the local club for those members that are also a member of MBA.
Membership fees are:
$30.00 – single
$35.00 – family
Please note: A “single” membership entitles the member to discounted registration rates to MBA events (for that member only). A “family” membership entitles the member to register “guests” ( meaning spouse, partner and immediate children) at the discounted rate as well.
MBA Members Benefits
The Michigan Beekeeper’s Association (MBA) was established in 1865. By becoming a member of the MBA you are providing your support to the oldest continuously operating agricultural organization in the state of Michigan. The MBA actively supports research for Michigan beekeeping and beekeepers. The Association also promotes Michigan beekeeping through educational programs, legislative advocacy and community outreach.
By becoming a member of the MBA, you can enjoy the following benefits…
- Meet and mingle with other beekeepers, people who share your passion for these amazing insects.
- Discounts on subscriptions to the American Bee Journal, Bee Culture, and The Speedy Bee magazines.
- Have a voice in legislation that directly affects beekeepers.
- Take advantage of special learning opportunities: workshops, hands on classes, statewide meetings & events.
- Registration discounts on spring, summer and fall meetings.
- Substantial discounts on advertising and promoting your honey on the MBA web site.
- Substantial discount for listing on the “Swarm Removal” map on the MBA web site.
- Have MBA member exclusive access to the “Honey Locator” page on the MBA web site.
Beekeepers tend to be a highly involved group of folks who rarely pass on an opportunity to promote the business of keeping honey bees. When asked why someone should join the MBA, we often turn this question around and ask “why you wouldn’t want to support the number one beekeeping advocacy group in Michigan?”
