Requirements Necessary to Get an NCSG Membership

The NCSG, National Chimney Sweep Guild, is a trade association that promotes the success of members, who are part of the chimney and venting industry. Established as a 501(c)(6) association, the NCSG uses public awareness to advance the industry. It also provides progressive services and encourages the ethical accountability and professionalism of its membership.

NCSG Member Chimney Sweep

Membership in the NCSG is available to various players within the industry. Chimney service companies can become voting members for NCSG election purposes. Companies that manufacture and supply goods or services to the chimney service industry may become supplier members. A combination membership is available to a chimney service-supplier company. Individuals or organizations who are not engaged in the chimney service industry but have an interest in it may join as affiliate members.

Chimney service companies based outside of the U.S. are entitled to non-voting international memberships. Retired owners of chimney sweep companies may apply to be senior members. A separate paper and online membership application is provided for each membership category. When a company joins NCSG, membership benefits are available to all of its employees.

Annual dues for a chimney service company voting membership are currently $459. A chimney inspection company that does not sweep may become a voting member. When a company first joins NCSG, its representative must acknowledge and agree to the NCSG Code of Ethics. If membership is renewed without a lapse, the acknowledgement need not be signed again unless the Code changes.

By joining the NCSG, a chimney service company receives access to services that assist in its growth and success. These include technical support, product discounts, networking opportunities, and discounted educational offerings. Members are expected to conform to the NCSG Code of Ethics and failure to do so could result in disciplinary action. Chimney professionals can learn more about the Code and NCSG membership benefits on the NCSG website.
