Become a member!

Anyone can become a member of the Essex County Beekeepers Society, whether they keep bees or not.  All that is needed is a keen interest in bee culture, the environment and a desire to learn and participate in the activities of the organization, both local and state-wide.  Members pay yearly dues to be on both local and state mailing lists - and to be invited to participate in social, educational and business gatherings.  Prospective members should print, complete and U.S. mail the membership form displayed by clicking on this link.  The Essex County Beekeepers Society, Inc. models its organization after other branches of the New Jersey Beekeepers Association.
