Digital Membership Cards
We are so grateful for your membership support during this unprecedented time in our community and our world.
As part of our commitment to preservation and conservation of our natural resources and marine environment, Nauticus is thrilled to launch a faster and greener way to deliver membership benefits to you, our Members.
Starting in August 2020, Members will have the opportunity to access your membership cards electronically. Digital membership cards will provide a more efficient and convenient way for Members to receive your cards, even getting your card the same day if you want! This environmentally-friendly approach supports the Museum’s vision by reducing our environmental footprint. In the first year, this change will eliminate thousands of paper letters, envelopes, and cards.
