Benefits of Membership


Members of the New Chalet Club (NCC) receive three Journals a year, together with the occasional interesting supplement, the cost of which are included in the annual subscription.


In addition, members are able to take part in the running of the club by joining the committee or by voting on club issues as an ordinary member. All members are invited to attend the Annual General Meeting (AGM), and any other events run by the club. They are more than welcome to write articles for the journals.


Our members can access the "NCC Members' Only Area" of the website with a password that is amended annually. All current members will be alerted as to the new password as soon as this happens. This area is where it is possible to download our recent journals, as well as the annual club accounts as covered at our AGM's. It is worth checking this section quite often as it does get updated regularly. It also details any merchandise we have for sale
