Bee Diseases Insurance ends on 31 December and if you renew your NBKA membership after 1 January the BDI cover will not be effective until the date of payment of your membership. Should you not pay your membership until after 31 March then BDI cover does not begin till 40 days after the date of payment of your membership.
If you have not renewed by 1 March then your membership will be lapsed and you will no longer be entitled to any benefits of membership including the affiliated membership of BBKA. Public and Product liability insurance will lapse on that date.
