2012 Annual Household Membership
Guild Membership is offered to households at $25/year for non-seniors and $15/year for students and seniors.
All members of a household are considered members and eligible for member’s benefits and to stand for election to Guild offices.
- Monthly meetings on the third Thursday of most months: Meetings can feature speakers or discussion of seasonally relevant beekeeping topics. Meetings are also open to non-members at no charge.
- Raffles, prizes and give-aways: The Guild tries to offer a small item of beekeeping interest to members at each meeting. Many of these items are donated by companies or organizations. If you would like to contribute a raffle item to promote your company contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
- Extractor Access: the Guild owns a motorized honey extractor and makes it available to members at a discounted rate.
- Discounted events and workshops: From time to time the Guild offers workshops and events related to beekeeping outside of the regular monthly meetings. These events are offered at a discount or at no charge to members.
- Group woodenware purchases: the Guild organizes a group woodenware purchase every year. By pooling our purchasing power we get our equipment at a very good price and beginning beekeepers are offered guidance and support.
- Guild Web Site: An online resource for Guild events and activities, news about local and global beekeeping issues and networking
Anything Else? We’re always looking for new ways to benefit members and the larger beekeeping and non-beekeeping community. If you have any ideas or requests let us know.
