The Wateree Beekeepers Association has two membership types: individual and family.
WBA collects the dues for the South Carolina Beekeepers Association (State) membership with local memberships.
At this time, local dues run from October 1 to September 30 each year, while State dues run from January 1 to December 31 each year. Please pay your local dues on time, so your State dues can be paid before you are removed from their system. When you are removed from their system, it can be difficult to recover your records.
Family memberships are available to families where only one member is seeking Certification in the Master Beekeeping Program, with the State. In situations where both members are pursuing Certification, both individuals must register individually.
