Individual members receive invitations to the History Seminar, the Annual Symposium, and the Submarine Technology Symposium and receive biweekly NSL Update emails. They receive a subscription to the quarterly journal, The Submarine Review, which is available to all members online on the website, can be provided in hard-copy by mail. Every member is affiliated with one of the 10 chapters and receives news of local chapter meetings and activities. Individual members may participate in many of the outreach activities such as the Speakers Bureau.
