Who Joins the Nashville Swiss Society?
Per our Constitution, we are “composed of members whose mother, father, grandmother, grandfather or the spouse of a member is a Swiss descendent.” Annual dues are currently $25, join after September and pay no dues for the next year. Attend a meeting as a visitor (no cost) and be eligible for membership candidacy and joining at the next or any following meeting. Besides our longtime members, we have a growing number of young, Swiss-born professionals whose employment brought them to Nashville and surrounding regions.
