General Meeting Information
Our meetings are open to the public and you don’t have to be a member to attend. SCBA’s monthly meetings begin with club business. There is time for questions and answers, where members help each other solve or prevent problems, followed by guest speakers that cover a wide variety of topics. The presentations are designed to help all levels of beekeepers including new folks interested in bees and beekeeping. Our meetings are a great place to make new friends, network and learn all about honeybees.
SCBA Membership Meetings are held the second Monday of every month, except July.
6 pm – 7 pm
Social Hour – Come in early and talk with board members and experienced beekeepers, cookies & tea – BYOC (bring your own cup)
Meetings are located at the Sonoma County 4-H Center facility, 6445 Commerce Boulevard, Rohnert Park. The 4H Center building is right behind the 24 hour fitness & Grocery outlet store.
