Chapter Clubs were originally part of the NRG structure but were discontinued because of lack of interest many years ago. The Board was approached by some of the members to consider reestablishing Guild Chapters and the Bylaws were amended to establish Chartered Chapters. The Board delayed the formation of a chapter system until we could offer a benefit to the Chapters.
The Nautical Research Guild is pleased to announce the first benefit available only to Chartered Chapters...liability insurance to protect clubs during their activities.
It is easy for any club to become an NRG Chapter Club; the biggest requirement is that five club members must be paying members of the NRG. More information can be found on the NRG Chartered Chapters page.
