Our purpose: to promote knowledge in modern beekeeping and improve marketing conditions. (see Article II for more details).
The Northeastern Kansas Beekeepers Association (NEKBA) is a 501(c)(5) (tax-exempt, educational, agricultural) public charity based in Shawnee Mission, Kansas. You may review our letter of exemption from the IRS and verify our standing with IRS Publication 78, upon request. Our Constitution & By-Laws are available for review below on this page. Also available are board meeting minutes, upon request.
2016 is on track for being another great year of supporting beekeeping for the association and the members in accomplishing the goals of the association.
We raised $1,605 from December's annual meeting and auction in support of the Scholarship Fund. Thank you! With the generous funding from the association supporters, we are able to sponsor a teenager and their family an opportunity to experience and learn beekeeping in Kansas.
One of our committee projects for 2017 will be to review and revise our association Constitution and By-laws. Things change, and our guidelines should change as well to keep up with the times. Stay tuned for other association legacy and archive documents to be accessible here in the future.
