The UCBA welcomes all interested persons. We embrace a diversity of opinion and believe that there are many ways to successfully keep bees and produce honey. We encourage member participation in discussions during meetings and invite anyone to suggest or give a presentation at one of our meetings; this will help the UCBA meet its mission statement.
One of the critical differences in this association is the celebration of the diversity of ideas on the way to manage beehives. This difference provides for a more open discussion in meetings and allows for the exchange of ideas so that the beekeepers can explore the methods of beekeeping that will sustain our hives for longer periods and with healthier bees. This celebration of diversity will remain as one of the cornerstones of the UCBA for the future.
Membership in the Utah County Beekeepers Association is open to anyone who meets the following criteria:
It is that easy! We don't mind if you are not currently keeping bees or if you live in Utah County or not. We welcome all who are interested in being part of our group.
Those people who are interested in being an official member of the UCBA should submit the annual dues which for 2014 are $12 per household. The annual dues are used to purchase supplies, and help with our Bee a Beekeeper Program. The dues are also used to purchase educational materials (posters, books, observation hives etc) for use at educational events. All dues paying members will receive the monthly newsletter via email.
