What is the OSBA Affiliate Program?

OSBA understands the issues facing local associations here in Ohio.

Resource demands, financial, volunteer time and effort, etc. to run a successful association continue to increase. Protecting officers and club members with appropriate insurance, completing paperwork and financial statements, and effectively communicating information in a timely fashion can all take time away from planning and conducting informational and fun association meetings.

OSBA has taken steps to alleviate many tasks and free up time and money through our OSBA Affiliate Program. Participation relieves the local association board of many paperwork and documentation tasks, provides financial savings on insurance needs, and affords the use of the OSBA nonprofit status for the benefit of the local club.

Following the steps to become an OSBA Affiliate can help create a stronger, more financially stable local association. Your board will have more time to focus on the needs of your local beekeeping community.

Benefits include:

    • 501c3 status under the OSBA umbrella
    • Access to discounted club insurance – Liability and Director/Officer insurance
    • Discounted software for club use
    • Webhosting and assistance with website setup
    • Reduction in cost of State filings
    • Reduction in yearly tax filing paperwork
