Merge and Surge!
Frequently Asked Questions - Updated June 2022
What is the timeline for this change?
October 1, 2022 - NRC merges with RMC; former NRC members become members of RMC and the Northern Rockies GIG. Voted in by membership and approved by National Board in May.
What happens to my Northern Rockies Chapter membership?
All NRC members will be converted to RMC members at no additional cost. And, using YOUR funds that remain in the Northern Rockies Chapter’s account, your RMC membership will be extended an additional six months.
Example: You renewed your NRC membership in February 2022. Normally, your membership would be due again in February 2023. However, when NRC merges with RMC, your RMC membership will be due for renewal in August, 2023.
After the merge, how will I be represented in the Rocky Mountain Chapter?
The Northern Rockies Geographic Interest Group will be led by two co-chairs - elected by the group’s members. The co-chairs will both be members of the RMC Board of Directors. In addition, you - as an RMC member - will be eligible to run for any RMC board position.
