By joining the American Branch, you get a “two-for-one” deal.  You receive all the benefits of the American Branch, but you are also eligible to become a full member of the Richard III Society’s parent organization in the United Kingdom. The latter has Company Limited by Guarantee (CLG) status. In order to complete the process and to comply with British law, your name, address, and date of birth need to be enrolled with the CLG.

New members – Please note:  To ensure that you promptly receive all your member benefits, we will register your name, address, and DOB with the CLG when you first join the American Branch.  Should you wish to “opt out” of membership with the CLG, you can contact our Membership Chair at membership@r3.org and ask to be removed.
