Associate Members - Suppliers of Products and Services

HNSA Associate Members are organizations whose objectives are compatible with the objectives of the Historic Naval Ships Association. Examples are historic ships not yet open to the public, firms who supply goods and services to Fleet Members, for-profit tourist attractions such as ship excursion lines, and non-profit organizations working to obtain historic naval ships for siting and display as museum vessels.

HNSA encourages its Fleet Members to give preference to the products and services offered by its Associate Member vendors and suppliers. It also advises Fleet Members to make their own decisions regarding the purchase, employment or other use of the products and services offered by its Associate Members. HNSA incurs no liability and assumes no responsibility for problems that may occur prior to, during or after an Associate Member has supplied a product or performed a service in support of a Fleet Member.

If you are interested in becoming an associate member, contact Dr. William Cogar at executivedirector@hnsa.org
