South Staffordshire & District Beekeepers Association Membership Information 2022/23

The Association has five types of Membership:

  • Registered Members
    • Members with bees will wish to be Registered Members. This includes insurance for up to 3 colonies. For those with more than three colonies, see additional table in the Membership Pack for additional premiums.
  • Partner Membership
    • If their partner wishes to be covered by third party insurance against claims because they are involved with bees, the Partner membership is appropriate. Please put their name and details on the Application form. Please note that Partner members must reside at the same address as a Registered member. BDI is not included or required for partner members.
  • Country Membership
    • If a person with no bees wishes to be on our mailing list, be involved with the Association’s activities and receive ‘BBKA News’ then Country Membership is the one to go for.
  • Associate Membership
    • Associate Membership is for Registered or Partner Members of other BBKA Associations who wish to take part in SS&DBKA activities at our Apiaries
  • Friend of South Staffs Membership
    • Lastly, for a person who just wishes to keep in touch with South Staffordshire & District Beekeeping Association and who would like to support Beekeepers within the County, and may or may not be a members elsewhere then a Friend of South Staffs Membership is available.
