How will my money be used?
Membership fees are vital to the financial health of this volunteer-run organization. Along with donations, they cover the costs of speakers, space rental for program meetings, printing and mailing of meeting notices and our annual Journal, administrative expenses, and insurance.

Why is the cost of membership so low?
We depend on volunteers for all our organizational work as in the work of the Board of Trustees in maintaining our website, to publicizing events, and keeping track of finances and membership roster. General members of the society, as they are able, are encouraged to assist at program meetings by helping with refreshments and general set up for the meeting. Spreading the word about programs and events is something all members can do help the NCHS. Your invitation to a friend or family member might be just the thing to get them to attend one of our events and then join the NCHS. For more details, speak to any member of the NCHS Board. We encourage memberships and donations at any time of year. Consider adding a few extra dollars to your membership to help us expand our programming capabilities.
