Ready to Join CIBA?  


You certainly don't want to miss our next field day!  Pictured is our 2021 field day at Todd Robert's apiary (left) and Andy Joseph's apiary (right), both near Bondurant, Iowa.  We had a great turn-out, and visited 5 different bee-yard sites.  This is just a sampling of the club offerings!

Membership dues fund our website, provide educational opportunities afforded all beekeepers through this site, meetings, field days and winter seminars as well as various community services.  To continue the support that we provide beekeepers, we need YOUR SUPPORT! CIBA pays speakers that we enlist at our meetings and seminars for presentations and expenses!

Make a beeline to join, as there is much in store for you in 2023!
