Old Northwest Chapter

Although geographically centered in the Chicago area, the ONWT Chapter routinely draws Company members from other parts of Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana and Michigan. Meetings are generally day-long events held at a site or museum of historical significance. The agenda at our meetings features speakers from within our ranks as well as presenters from outside the organization. 

While the primary purpose of this Chapter page is to keep our members informed about scheduled activities,  it is also intended to introduce non-members to our orgasnization. Even if you are not yet a Chapter member, we can assure you that you are welcome to attend any of our meetings -- come as our guest and see what we are all about! History-based hobbies can sometimes be a lonely pursuit, and sharing your interests with others makes the hobby much more enjoyable. Besides, if that book you just read or that show you just saw on the History Channel has sparked some questions, you'll probably find someone who can answer them at one of our meetings. Come and get to know the friendliest (and possibly the most knowledgeable) group of armchair historians you'll ever run across. You'll be glad that you did!.

Our meetings usually feature an "outside" speaker telling us about how their organization caters to a different aspect of interest in military history. Networking with other organizations of similar interest and picking up new ideas is very important to the members of this chapter. Regular meeting  features also include a segment on historic preservation, a segment on some aspect of military collecting, and our popular "show and tell" segment, too. 

Members of the Chapter must be also be members of the Company, but we can arrange membership in both organizations if you are not yet a Company member. There are no dues for the Chapter, but there is a $5 administrative fee to cover the cost of mailings, etc. For more information on joining, e-mail the Chapter Secretary, Linnea Bass.
