Membership

The North Caroliniana Society seeks to recognize men and women who have contributed significantly to their state. It elects to membership North Carolinians who meet the strict criterion of “adjudged performance” in service to their state’s heritage–i.e., those who have demonstrated a continuing interest in and support of North Carolina’s historical, literary, and cultural strength.

Starting initially with 21 distinguished North Carolinians and currently limited to 250, the Society fills vacancies by electing additional individuals meeting its criterion of “adjudged performance.” By doing so, it brings together men and women who have shown their respect for and commitment to our state’s unique historical, literary, and cultural inheritance.
