Why Join TBA?

Membership in TBA helps beekeepers across Tennessee as our 1000+ members represent your interests before state government, within regional and national organizations, and with manufacturers of beekeeping supplies.

TBA’s work in recent years has resulted in bee-friendly state legislation, bringing Heartland Apicultural Society meetings to our state, educational grants, queen-rearing training and hive-grant programs for local bee clubs, and awards for 4-H members participating in the American Beekeeping Federation essay contest.  Members receive the Hive Tool, our bi-monthly newsletter. Since not everyone is able to attend, we strive to make our annual meeting a budget-neutral event – not supported by membership fees.

Please download our membership application in either PDF format or as a Microsoft Word document.  Please fill out all the blanks, your information is important.
