Even if you are anonymously filling out this survey, we would still like to know a few things about your hives so we can get a better understanding on the types of members we have in our club.
This information will help when we are planning new courses, organizing events and guest speakers, and it will give us a good picture of what sort of people the club is attracting.
Anyone who keeps one or more hives of bees in Victoria is required to register with the Department of Economic Development, Jobs, Transport and Resources (DEDJTR) as a beekeeper.
Registration enables the department to conduct disease prevention and control programs for the benefit of beekeepers. This includes the mailing of helpful information from time to time.
There is no charge for registration when a person keeps at least one hive but not more than 5 hives and registers online using the DEDJTR website.
If you have not registered we can help you register. Ask one of our senior members at the next club meeting to guide you through the registration process on one of our online terminals. Otherwise you can follow our LINKS page off the top menu of the web site to direct you to the official registration page after you have filled in the survey.
