Affinity Groups of the National Speleological Society

An affinity group is an organization which will foster the NSS goal of fellowship among those interested in caves with common interests of their members not directly related to speleology. An affinity group is technically not an internal organization of the society and does not have the privileges and obligations of an internal organization. The purpose of an affinity group must be compatible with the purposes and policies of the NSS.
