Ready to Join NoVES?
We encourage visitors to consider membership in NoVES.
NoVES membership comprises a wide range of persuasions, from atheists, agnostics, skeptics, secularists, rationalists, and others, including those who practice a specific faith.
There is no religious test for membership: belief or disbelief in a deity (or other metaphysical ideas) is less important to us than how we live our values: respect for individual human worth and respect for the world which sustains human life, dignity and worth. We hold in common our recognition that our words and deeds make a difference in this world, and that working to create a more humane world for ourselves, our children and others is a worthwhile commitment. We welcome inquisitive individuals of all backgrounds and hope you will find NoVes a welcoming and stimulating group
The Ethical Society is a cooperative community, supported by the voluntary effort and financial contribution of its members. Members contribute generously as they are able to support the Society. Members also contribute their time and effort as they are able to the volunteer committees and projects of the Society. Members vote to elect the Society's Board of Trustees, to approve the annual budget and to approve policy decisions and other important matters, at an annual membership meeting and, occasionally, specially-called membership meetings.
