Please join us tonight, September 5th, at Meadowbrook Farm for our SVBA Annual Meeting.
September is our Annual Club Meeting and we will be holding elections for new officers and trustees for 2024.
Please read below for further details about the nominations and elections. There are some important officer positions that need to be filled for next year.
To encourage attendance at this important club meeting, we will be holding a raffle for a chance to win a nuc/bee package.
To receive a raffle ticket you must have an active 2023 SVBA household membership. Each household membership will receive one raffle ticket at entry to the meeting and you must be present at the time of the drawing. Arrangements will be made to deliver the nuc/bee package to the winner next spring.
There will be an opportunity to renew/join in person at the meeting prior to the raffle or you can join/renew online.
