Vermont Beekeepers Association

Who We Are and What We Do

Vermont Beekeepers AssociationSince 1886 the VBA has promoted the general welfare of Vermont's Honey Industry, while sustaining a friendly body of unity among the state's beekeepers.  

The Vermont Beekeepers Association, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, represents hundreds of beekeepers that raise bees for the love and honey. We’re as diverse as the 246 towns in Vermont, but are unified in our fascination with and affection for bees. Most of us are hobbyists, but there are some “side liners” who try to make a bit of extra income from their 25-200 hives as well as a handful of full-time professionals. Join Today!

VBA Members: You now have the option of checking the status of your membership account, updating your membership information and renewing your membership in the Vermont Beekeepers Association online.

It's easy. Simply login to the site as you normally would and look under the User Menu on the right sidebar of the site's front page. You'll see a few new options:

  • My Membership Status - allows you to view the status of your account, whether your payment is up to date and if your membershp is active. It also allows you to renew your membership at any time. (If you do choose to renew your membership before you receive an automatic email reminder your renewal date will take effect at the expiration of your current membership term. In other words, you don't lose any time on your membership by renewing early.)
  • My Account Information - allows you to update your membership record in real time. In fact, why not take a moment and do it now as it will help us update our records? (Note: Although you can change your email address on the account page your email address serves as your online username which you can't change. You'll need to email to update your username.)

Thirty days before your membership is set to expire you will receive an automatic email reminder asking you to renew which you may do online by following the link in the email you receive. You'll receive another reminder fifteen days before expiration. At any time you may retrieve your username and password by choosing the Forgot your Password or Username links on the front page.

We have just finished incorporating our offline and online membership records and we anticipate there may be some mistakes so, if you notice an error, please let us know by contacting
