Q: I am new to the area and don’t know any NSA members. Can I still apply for membership?
A: The NSA does not require that new members be sponsored. Just download and fill out this Membership Application form and drop it in the mail, or better yet register online.
Q: Does one membership include my spouse and children?
A:Yes, one membership will include you and your spouse or significant other. Children are not considered members but they are welcomed at all events.
Q: Can NSA members bring guests to NSA-sponsored events?
A: Only Patron members can bring additional guests. A Patron membership entitles four individuals to be admitted to all NSA functions (except those for which there is a separate admission charge; for example, the Commodore’s Ball).
Q: I live more than 200 miles from Oriental. Do you offer membership options based on location?
A: No, since the NSA does not have a clubhouse, there is no additional benefit to anyone living in or around Oriental.
Q: How do I become a member of the NSA?
A: It's easy. You can apply online using our online registration page and submit it along with your dues payment. We can accept VISA and MasterCard.
