The club is run totally by member volunteers. Below is a list of some of the existing committees. Joining a committee is a great way to get to know your fellow beekeepers and take an active role in the club. Please consider volunteering - we're always looking for newcomers!

State Fair

The FVBA enters a booth in the Illinois State Fair annually in August. The booth represents apiary products from our members and we compete against other beekeeping clubs in Illinois.  See Angie Nelson if you'd like to help plan this years booth.


Periodically throughout the year, the club gets requests for speakers to speak on apiary topics at various school, community meetings/events. This committee consists of people interested in sharing their interest in beekeeping with others in local communities.


The social committee's main responsibility is the annual picnic.  Looking for volunteers to help plan the picnic. See a board member for more information.
