One of the member benefits is a 25% discount to the the American Bee Journal magazine. The subscription price to Bee Culture is the regular rate as due to price increase, there is no longer an association discount. The subscription rates are $24.65 and $25.00 respectively, which are good through 12/31/2020. Your subscriptions to both of these magazines will be forwarded at the end of each month.
We think it important to at least give you some more information about the association. We are a Not-for-Profit IRC 501(c)5 (agricultural-educational) organization; run by dedicated volunteers; supported primarily by membership subscriptions.
The IRC status means that the association is a tax-exempt organization. While donations are always welcome, under this status they are not tax deductible as a qualified charitable contribution. However, your membership and magazine subscription(s) may be deductible as ordinary and necessary business expenses. Please consult your tax advisor for further information.
The association was founded in 1903 to serve the needs of beekeepers with the object of advancing the education of the public in Apiculture. The organization’s activities are directed towards enhancing the interests of the honey bee and beekeeping.
Beekeeping provides a never ending source of enjoyment and interest to an ever-increasing number of people of all ages and gender – who are taking it up as a hobby or a subsidiary source of income.
For others who are already keeping bees, we can offer support and advice towards succeeding. We strive to set high standards for the promotion of honey and other bee products, and ensure the best beekeeping practices.
We encourage membership and involvement in the Kansas Honey Producers' Association, which is considered our state affiliate and includes members from all around the state of Kansas and outside the state.
We meet in March and October for a 2 day learning conference. We also volunteer to support the Honey Exhibit at the Kansas State Fair each September in Hutchinson.
We are here as a resource and know that the interest in beekeeping brings much personal satisfaction to our members. Thank you for your interest.
