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 and Best Practices Guideline are available for review below on this page. Also available are board meeting minutes, upon request.
2018 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 $1,878 from 2017 November'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 2018 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.
