 Membership with NCSBA is not a requirement to become an OCBA member. However, there are many excellent perks to having a NCSBA membership to include membership to the largest volunteer led State beekeeping association in the United States, receiving quarterly Bee Buzz magazine, access to a complete library of beekeeping books and DVSs, and allows attendance to the annual Spring and Summer meetings where attendees hear prominent speakers, attend informational workshops,  and save money by shopping with vendors and meet other beekeepers.
