How to Join

About Membership

Membership in the CDBA is open to anyone interested in bees and beekeeping.  You do not need to own a hive to join.  Our membership year runs from January through December and is $25.00 per year for the primary member.  A spouse, significant other, or child may also join as a secondary member for an additional $12.00 each per calendar year.  $10 of the registration fee goes to enroll primary members with the Illinois State Beekeepers Association.

If you have questions about membership or encounter problems getting registered, contact the CDBA Membership Chair by E-mail ([email protected]).

Join or Renew Online

The preferred method is to join or renew your membership online using a credit card. Visit our online CDBA registration to do that via our secure payment portal. It is generally easiest to use a computer instead of a mobile device like a cell phone.

Join or Renew By Mail

To pay by check, fill out the Membership Form and mail it with a check made payable to Cook-DuPage Beekeepers Association.
