The Society convenes a business meeting and gathering once each year and our President notifies us via the Clan Chatter newsletter as to date and place. This is a business and social affair and all members in good standing are urged to attend and contribute to our Scottish Heritage. This meeting has been held at Grandfather Mountain near Linville, NC for over 50 years.
The Clan Society Genealogy Chair and family line specialists provide a central source of our ancestor data. A number of our current members are accomplished genealogists and contribute significant historical information to our database each year. If you have a keen interest in a particular family line please let us know.
The linchpin of our communications is the "Clan Chatter" published twice a year. This publication provides a forum for all of us to share family data and keep up to date on Clan Society matters. We welcome member articles to be submitted for sharing ancestor data.
All officers serve on a voluntary basis and devote many hours to Clan Society affairs. If you have interest in accepting a position to support the Clan Society please let any current officer know of your interest.
Each new member will receive a Certificate of Membership, a copy of the Clan Society By Laws, the Clan Chatter, access to genealogical information collected by the Clan Society, participation in events and all rights and privileges of membership.
