EAS Members Matter – Here is why!

The Eastern Apicultural Society of North America, Inc. (EAS) is an international nonprofit educational organization founded in 1955 for the promotion of bee culture, education of beekeepers, certification of Master Beekeepers, and excellence in bee research.

EAS is the largest noncommercial beekeeping organization in the United States and one of the largest in the world.

EAS is educational, community-minded, and fun to be a part of. Our conferences not only educate but offer a chance to become part of a community of people just like you who appreciate and care about beekeeping.
