The Inland Empire Beekeeping Association (IEBA) is a non-profit group for the purpose of educating and offering a forum to both hobbyists and professional beekeepers in the area surrounding Spokane, Washington and Northern Idaho.

The IEBA, one of the first in Washington State, started circa 1936. The association has served beekeepers in the Northwest for over 75 years.  IEBA is affiliated with the Washington State Beekeepers Association, WASBA.

The IEBA meets the 2nd Friday of every month at the WSU Extension building by the County Fairgrounds, at 222 N. Havana.  There is an informal meet, greet, and talk bees from 6:00-7:00.  Meetings start at 7:00pm, and are followed by a monthly educational program.  This education time delves into current trends, seasonal beekeeping methods, and other issues that are beneficial for beekeepers in the area.


 Joining the IEBA

Have we piqued your interest yet?  Joining the IEBA is as easy as showing up at the next meeting (the 2nd Friday of every month except September).  We welcome all beekeepers and look forward to your company and participation.  Don't be shy.  The most helpful Beekeeping education comes directly from your local beekeepers.  If you want to learn more about your bees and learn what others are doing in the area, this is your opportunity.
