Reminder: Our next board meeting will be Saturday, February 4th at 10:00 a.m. As always, we'll be at the Flatwoods Waffle House. An agenda should be available soon.
REQUESTING GRANTS FROM THE WVBA TO FUND LOCAL SPEAKERS
The West Virginia Beekeepers Association will provide up to $120 per year to our associated local clubs to pay for visiting speakers. To obtain these funds, you must use the WVBA SPEAKER FEE REQUISITION VOUCHER. Send the completed form to:
Steve Roth, Treasurer
325 Whites Lane
Wheeling, WV 26003
Or, you may email it to: firstname.lastname@example.org
A check for the requested amount will be issued to your club, not directly to the speaker. This program is a 75/25 match, which means the local club is required to pay 25% of the speaker's fee. You may request funds in any amount up to $120. For example, you can pay two speakers $80 each ($60 from the WVBA and $20 from the club), one speaker $100 ($75 from the WVBA and $25 from the club), or one speaker $160 ($120 from the WVBA and $40 from the club). The amount paid to any speaker is your choice, but you may not request more than a $120/year and the club must contribute at least 25% of the total cost. The WVBA year is October 1 – September 30.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Steve Roth at 304-242-9867 or email@example.com.
The purpose of the organization shall be to promote the general interest in the pursuit of bee culture. This is accomplished by promoting awareness about honey bees, their fight for survival, what can be done to aid their survival and the support of beekeepers. This is achieved through Newsletters, Spring and Fall Conferences, involvement with West Virginia Agriculture and Conservation Day at the Legislature activities which promote the honey bee and products of the hive, and far more widely via this website which has the power to reach a global readership.
