Keeping the Bee in Business

Club Presidents! Join the Outreach Committee

The WASBA Outreach Committee was formed at the beginning of 2023.  The purpose is to bring together the presidents of bee clubs in Washington State each month to talk about best practices and challenges within our clubs.  The shared expertise will be brought back to individual clubs to strengthen and provide them with resources.  The connections between the presidents will also benefit clubs.

Our first meeting was held on January 25th and there was an excellent turnout.  We came up with a preliminary list of topics that we’d like to discuss at future meetings including governance and organizational requirements, technology and websites, insurance and legal advice, and membership.  

The recurring monthly meetings have been scheduled at a time when the most presidents can attend.  As we continue to discuss club management topics, we will work to bring in experts to educate us on some of the more complex topics.

Meetings will be held the first Wednesday of each month and are open to all Washington State Bee Club presidents and others based on recommendations.
