Downloadable NSS Membership Forms
The latest official paper membership forms for the National Space Society are available for download here. Print these out to use at your public events.
A Free Web Site for your Chapter
As a service to the chapters of the National Space Society, CyberTeams has made available to us server resources and software tools to make it easy for our chapters to create their own web sites. A web site can be an important tool for publicizing your chapter and its activities. For details and to establish your chapter's web site, please send an email to Bruce Mackenzie
For more detailed information, see Documentation on Web Site Creation.
For examples of web sites that some other chapters have created here, please visit one or more of the following chapter web sites:
Resources for your Chapter Web Site
Whether your Chapter Web site is on the CyberTeams server or not, NSS has made available graphics, photos, videos, and advertisements that you can link to and/or display on your site.
