In May of 2014, a group of ~8 people met to discuss the idea of forming a beekeeping club in the Bryan/College Station area. The main subject of that very first organizational meeting was the reasons each of us had for wanting a club - ie. "what should be do and why should we exist?" From this discussion arose what became our club's mission statement - which we codified as “Article II” of our club By-Laws.
- Further the general knowledge and success of member hobbyist beekeepers through educational programs designed for improved promotion, production and marketing of bees and bee products and services for hobbyist beekeepers in the Brazos Valley.
- Cooperate and coordinate with other beekeeping organizations which share similar goals and objectives.
- Encourage and promote Beekeeping and the importance of the honey bees and beekeeping activities to the general public.
So far, I think we’re doing a pretty good job at holding to those goals.
