“The Official Organization for All Indiana Beekeepers”
As you’re aware, the beekeepers in Indiana voted to become one state organization. This was a momentous decision that is allowing us to use our resources in a more efficient manner. We’ve hosted the largest Bee School Indiana has ever had, we are working on getting a Honey Bee license plate, we have an education committee that has already fulfilled several requests for speakers, we have a ‘New Club’ committee that is helping new clubs get started (already 4 this year) and we are in full swing for the Purdue Field Day in June.
During the first few months of this transitional period, we’ve been keeping up both websites from the past two clubs; however, over the next few months, we’ll be phasing out these websites and will be moving to a new website for The Beekeepers of Indiana.
