Join the Sons of Utah Pioneers!
Membership in the National Society of The Sons of Utah Pioneers is open to men everywhere who admire the heritage and values of the early pioneers of Utah and the intermountain west. All are invited to learn more about these courageous and visionary men and women, and to remember their values and legacy. It is not necessary to have pioneer ancestry to become a member of the Sons of Utah Pioneers.
Members are encouraged to affiliate with a nearby chapter where they will enjoy the fellowship of other like-minded men. Chapter meetings usually include stimulating and informative speakers on historical subjects of interest. Other activities in chapters are group treks to historic places, establishing and maintaining historical monuments and markers, and supporting appropriate community events. Many chapters also recognize pioneering elementary and high school students with awards and scholarships, and honor modern pioneers from their local communities.
Persons who live some distance from an organized chapter may be a member-at-large. Every member is welcome at all national events and at any chapter meeting where they may wish to visit.
All members receive the colorful print edition of the quarterly PIONEER Magazine, a high-quality historical publication of the SUP.
Many members make a lifetime commitment to the S.U.P. organization by becoming Life Members. See the S.U.P. Store for details of membership.
Note: Wives are encouraged to participate in national events along with their husbands, and most (but not all) chapters include wives in their monthly meetings.
