Anyone may join the NFGS by applying and paying the annual dues.   NFGS members are offered various activities and services and certain exclusive glass items.  Primary members ($30 annual dues)  receive our newsletter, while Primary Associate ($5) members do not.  Households with both Primary and Primary Associates will receive only one copy of each Fenton Flyer newsletter issue.  All members will receive a permanent membership card when initially joining that remains in effect as long as dues are current.  A 4% administrative fee will be added to all credit/debit card transactions.

NFGS dues are payable January 1st for the upcoming year.  Each year after September 1st the dues are reduced for the balance of the year.  The post-convention rates are as follows:  Primary members ($15.00), Primary Associate ($2.50).  A 4% administrative fee will be added to all credit/debit card transactions.  

Please specify full names and complete mailing address.  Please include your street address unless you want glass shipped to your post office box.  It is necessary if you wish to join or renew via PayPal.  A phone number is helpful if we need to contact you.  Please include your email address if you wish to receive correspondence, special notices and information via email.  Our mailing list is not shared with anyone.

Members enjoy a three-day weekend convention held in late July or early August each year. Educational seminars allow members (or special guests) to share their knowledge about different aspects of glass collecting.   A “Glass Forum” is conducted by experts who help identify glass brought by members having questions. Convention glass displays from members’ collections are reviewed and discussed.  An annual dinner (banquet) and a dinner cruise aboard a sternwheel riverboat are each followed by an auction of “whimseys” (fanciful variations) created exclusively for NFGS members.
 
The NFGS newsletter, The Fenton Flyer, published and mailed to Primary members six times per year, contains organizational news, educational articles, and other items of interest to members. Members may advertise “For Sale” or “Wanted” items.  The majority of the material is contributed by members.  

Beginning with 2014 memberships, the NFGS mice are available for purchase for ALL members.


Crown Tuscan ($29) and Opal (Milk Glass) ($25) mice are being offered for the 2017 membership year.  They are limited to one of each color per household (Primary member). The mice were pressed at the Mosser Glass Company.

Please contact the NFGS office regarding availability and to place an order for your mouse of choice.
