How To Join / Renew

Sign Me Up!
I want to help bring about a balanced view of Richard III, learn about late fifteenth-century England, and join in a fellowship of like-minded people!

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 and ask to be removed.

Existing members – Please note:  If you joined the American Branch before 2020, you will need to complete the CLG registration form in order to preserve all your UK benefits.  Please see the links below for the form, and for instructions on how to submit the form via email or post. This only needs to be done one time.

  • Biannual Ricardian Register
