The cost is $25.00 for individuals or $35.00 per family which includes 1 book/registration, handouts, and membership in the GCBA. North Carolina State Beekeepers Association membership ($15.00 per person) is required for those wanting to participate in the Master Beekeeper program and take the certified beekeepers examination. It is not required to take the beginners course or join the Guilford Beekeepers, but it is strongly encouraged.

WE WILL BREAK OUT NCSBA PAYMENTS AND FORWARD NCSBA MEMBERSHIP APPLICATIONS AND PAYMENTS AS A GROUP DURING THE MONTH OF JANUARY, 2016.
