The state association was organized in Denver in 1880 by J.L. Peabody, E. Milleson and Olive Wright. It was incorporated as the Colorado State Beekeepers’ Association in 1888 and is affiliated with the American Beekeeping Federation. The CSBA is the oldest and most widely recognized beekeeping organization in Colorado.
The CSBA functions as an umbrella organization for all other regional beekeeping organizations and clubs in the State. In addition, the CSBA is also the only organization in Colorado that represents the concerns and interests of the commercial beekeeping sector.
The CSBA functions as the main interface between State and local agencies and beekeepers.
All dues and monies collected by the CSBA go towards educational and associated social functions at meetings. The high level of cutting-edge information available at CSBA meetings often provides one of the only opportunities for local beekeepers to learn about events and concerns within the larger beekeeping community.
