      This is where you sign up for the opportunity to be in this class. 

      We encourage all who are interested to register. However, in order to ensure the quality and effectiveness of our program, there will be a limited number of class spots available.

      YOU MUST SIGN UP BEFORE MIDNIGHT ON MONDAY, JANUARY 15th, 2018.  

      Due to the anticipated high level of interest we will not accept any applications past this time. Depending on the number of applicants we may use a selection process including, for example, a reading assignment and entrance exam.

      (To register, click on the orange "Register" button to the left and when completed, CONFIRM your completed registration).

      Beekeeping and this class require both a time and a financial commitment. 

      1. TIME: This mentorship program will meet once a month on nights or weekends for a few hours in a classroom session, sometimes with a follow-up session in the bee yard. 

      2. FINANCIAL: The cost for the program will be around $450.00. The cost depends on our suppliers' bee and equipment pricing for 2018, and will include everything needed to establish a Spring bee colony. Your training is a free service of our association.

      We encourage you to attend our TVBA meetings held at 7 pm Eastern time, on the fourth Monday of each month at the Red Bank Presbyterian Church, 4320 Dayton Blvd. What you learn at our meetings will help you in the class. 

      If you are interested, or only think you are interested in beekeeping, we encourage you to attend our TVBA meetings held at 7 pm Eastern time, on the fourth Monday of each month at the Red Bank Presbyterian Church, 4320 Dayton Blvd., Chattanooga, TN 37415. Also, visit our website, www.tvbachatt.org for more information about the Tennessee Valley Beekeepers Association.
