To Our Members & Guests -
It is my privilege and pleasure to welcome you to the Virginia State Beekeepers Association website and to represent the VSBA as president!

My name is Martha Kiene and like most of you I've been a beekeeper for many years. We are fortunate to have a great leadership team that is fully committed to VSBA and continues to go the extra mile in building this association, while carrying out the many worthwhile projects that we undertake for the benefit of our beekeeping community.

The recent restrictions with COVID-19 has certainly put a damper on our 2020 plans for live meetings, conferences, and our goal of meeting you. We encourage all members to keep strong during our struggles with COVID-19 restrictions and to maintain your enthusiasm, and commitment to beekeeping.  We're looking forward to a bright 2021 and getting to know each of you a little better.  

Meet our team of dedicated volunteers


VSBA offers a master beekeeper education program to educate beekeepers that includes testing and certification for those interested in learning successful apiary management.
