Charleston Area Beekeepers Association supports our State organization, South Carolina Beekeepers Association or SCBA.
South Carolina Beekeepers Association Meeting/Conference
South Carolina beekeepers convene at a meeting/conference twice a year in spring (February or March) and in summer (July). Members of the association, hobby and commercial beekeepers, junior youth beekeepers, students, researchers, vendors, and members of the public are encouraged to attend.
In addition to the general business meeting and an update on the status of beekeeping in SC, attendees learn about best practices and current research underway to support bees and beekeeping. There are opportunities to take beekeeping courses and exams, exchange tips, purchase equipment from a variety of vendors, network with beekeepers and vendors from across the state and participate in social events.
SC and North Carolina State Beekeepers Association members host a joint meeting every other year. The next joint meeting will be held in spring (February or March) 2017.
