State Sponsorship

Supporting Beekeepers Nationally and Locally

Integral to the ABF’s commitment to a strong American beekeeping industry is our unwavering support of state beekeeping associations across the country. Members rely on collaborative efforts between our organizations to help them face challenges and make sense of a fluid legislative and regulatory landscape.

We share a common goal of giving members insight and tools to succeed as beekeepers. Access to information, education and legislative and regulatory leadership are highly sought-after benefits of ABF membership, and starting now, your state can tap into these resources!

Sponsoring the ABF gives your state beekeeping association support in your continuous efforts to add value to membership in your organization without a hefty price tag. With input from our partnering state organizations, the ABF designed four new state sponsorship packages tailored to address the diverse needs of beekeepers nationwide.

Other than the $100 minimum contribution, there is no set amount due to become a state sponsor. Select the sponsorship level that best suits your state association and contribute whatever amount the organization is able. For questions, contact us at info@abfnet.org.
