About Us

About Us

WillBees is a volunteer organization formed in 2011 with over 100 members strong. Our mission is to provide new and seasoned beekeepers with ongoing education to help maintain their hives. We also encourage beekeepers to share their knowledge and mentor other beekeepers of all levels during our monthly membership meetings.

While our focus is Will County, we welcome new members from all communities. Board elections for president, vice president, secretary and treasurer are held yearly while the board of directors are a three year term with one director position up for election every year.
