Annual membership dues of $30, which includes joining both the Outer Banks BeeKeepers’ Guild and the North Carolina State Beekeepers Assoc. (see info below) can be mailed to our Treasurer, Drew Owens – drewobx@hotmail.com – 113 Pinewood Acres Drive, Powells Point 27966.  Please visit www.ncbeekeepers.org/membership/join-or-renew-now to download the application form, which you would fill out to send in with your dues or bring to a meeting!

Anyone interested in beekeeping and the beekeeping industry may attend our meetings at any time!  Joining the Guild, though, requires annual dues.  Membership categories are Regular, Junior (under age 18) and Lifetime.  The right to vote shall be limited to Regular and Lifetime members in good standing, eighteen (18) years of age and older.

The annual dues for the members is the sum of the NCSBA dues (currently $15 per individual), plus the annual dues of the Outer Banks BeeKeepers’ Guild (currently $15 per regular member and $5 per junior member) payable in advance to the Treasurer of the Chapter and shall be due beginning in November for the ensuing year.  All dues expire on December 31 of each year.  Any member of the Chapter who becomes delinquent in payment of dues after December 31 will be dropped from the roll of membership after the State annual spring meeting and shall cease to be a dues-paid member of the NCSBA and the local Chapter.  A person who has been dropped from the roll of membership for non-payment of dues may be restored to active membership by paying current year dues.

Lifetime membership in the local Chapter may be given to a member who has contributed in some outstanding way to the local Chapter’s aims and ideals and for meritorious service to the Chapter upon recommendation of the Executive Committee and a majority vote of the members present at any regular meeting.  Lifetime members shall be excused from payment of local dues.  No member shall be given Life Membership merely for continuous membership or for the purpose of not paying dues.

    I would like to begin raising bees in Duck, NC this spring. I will need a source for bees, supplies and literature. What options do you have for dues payment. I have hives.
