TBA Officers and Directors

Texas Beekeepers Association (TBA) is a member based organization representative of commercial, sideliner, and small-scale beekeepers, as well as scientists, educators and other individuals interested in the promotion and preservation of honey bees and beekeeping in the State of Texas.

Many of the TBA members are also members of their local beekeeping associations, the ABF (American Beekeeping Federation) and/or the AHPA (American Honey Producers Association), giving them experience and interest on the local and national level.

TBA has among its past presidents and directors a virtual who’s who of beekeeping. From major commercial beekeepers and queen breeders to leading educators, scientists, and businessmen, all have generously given their time and talent to lead TBA to the prominent position it holds in the state and the nation.

As a volunteer organization we are constantly seeking talent to help make our organization better. If you’re interested in volunteering – please fill out this form.
