Irish Beekeepers’ Association clg (“IBAclg”) welcomes applications for membership (but reserves the right to reject an application under our constitution).
- Individual Membership
We facilitate Beekeepers who are not in a location where there is not an affiliated IBA CLG Association, we ask that those joining have some experience of beekeeping as we like to give as much support to these beekeepers as is possible through the IBA CLG organization as is possible.
Webinars, group scheme buying, YouTube videos and other resources are made available to the members. We will always where possible try to connect people in specific areas to have a beekeeping Buddy if they so wish
- Membership via affiliated local associations.
Beekeepers who belong to an association affiliated to IBAclg . This annual subscription is €20 per individual, payable via your local association. Your local association secretary/treasurer will then submit your data and fee to the IBAclg. Once your secretary has submitted that data, and you have been accepted as a member, you will be covered under our insurance policy. In addition to the €20 to IBAclg – your local association will usually add an additional amount to cover its costs. That incremental amount is up to each local association to decide. Association affiliation is renewed on an annual basis, to be renewed no later than the 31st January each year. Each affiliated association can send delegates to vote at the AGM in accordance with our constitution.
