GCBA Beginner Beekeeping Course 2014-Updated Information

Post by Jacobs »

WE STILL HAVE SPACES AVAILABLE--IF YOU HAVE NOT MAILED YOUR FORM IN AS OF JANUARY 12, 2014, PLEASE FILL IT OUT AHEAD OF TIME AND BRING IT AT 6:30 PM THURSDAY TO THE FIRST SESSION. We hope to avoid people having registrations in the mail and not received by our first session.

The Guilford County Beekeepers Association will offer the
Beginner Beekeeping Course on the following dates:

Thursday, January 16
Thursday, January 23
Thursday, January 30
Thursday, February 6
Thursday, February 13
Thursday, February 20
Thursday, MARCH 6 (make up day in the event of cancellation of earlier class date)

Classes begin at 7:00 pm for about 2 hours a session, and will be held at the Guilford County Agricultural Center, 3309 Burlington Road, Greensboro, NC. The plan is for 5 teaching sessions, administration of the optional written portion of the NCSBA certified beekeepers examination at week 6, for those wishing to take it, and 1 week reserved for bad weather rescheduling or a bonus Q&A session.

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 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 have included a link to our registration form AND the NCSBA membership form on our home page. If you want to enroll in the class AND join the NCSBA, please complete both forms and mail them with 1 check payable to "GCBA" to our treasurer, Ruth Edwards, at her address on our registration form until December 15th. After December 15th, please mail the checks to our 2014 Treasurer, Jim Parker, at his address on the form. (We will forward the NCSBA forms and a GCBA check in batches.)
