NSSAR Application Programs
There are several different ways available for you to prepare your NSSAR member/supplemental applications. All of them require computer preparation and the following standards apply:
- All applications are required to be printed on a special 8.5 by 14 inch SAR watermarked paper. This paper is available from the SAR Merchandise Department and is listed as catalog number #0917 Blank Archival Paper. Please visit the SAR Merchandise online catalog for a supply.
- The text format for the forms should be Times New Roman in a normal print, NOT bold typeface.
- The data entered onto the form may be in Helvetica, Times Roman, or Courier and in either normal or bold typeface.
NOTE: The National Headquarters will return any application whose text, logo, or data are badly printed. Since new applicants are usually not familiar with what a properly printed form looks like, Chapter and State Society individuals who are involved with the application process should watch for problem applications.
The following are the currently approved application software packages available. Each one offers a different method to complete the application.
