The subscription for Full Membership to the Association is £30 per annum.
From this we send £22 to the Yorkshire Beekeepers' Association, of which £19 is then allocated to the British Beekeepers' Association. Through this affiliation with the BBKA, a member is covered for Third Party Public Liability Insurance and Products Insurance.
From the subscription a further £2 is paid to Bee Diseases Insurance (BDI), which covers beekeepers for up to 3 colonies in respect of losses caused by statutorily notifiable honeybee diseases and pests.
Additional colonies can be insured on payment of further premiums (the rates are available upon request from the Treasurer):- all colonies within the same apiary must be insured. Insurance is valid Jan-Dec but payments made after 31st March only give cover after 40 days. This is not meant to discourage beginners merely to explain what happens to your subscription.
Friends of the Association who attend Apiary meetings, lectures and or wish to be included on the Newsletter mailing list, are asked to donate £10 per annum. This does not give Insurance Cover or affiliation to other Associations.
