Our regular, in-person monthly membership meetings are currently open to members only with advance registration (we will announce when we resume opening these meetings to non-members and for on-site registration). They are available to be viewed online (livestreamed) by members and non-members via Zoom with advance registration. The meetings are generally held on the first Wednesday of each month, from 6:00pm - 8:30pm, at various sites of interest throughout the five boroughs (once a quarter they will be held online only via Zoom). Meetings generally have a guest speaker covering a topic of interest to NYC tour guides or NYC in general. Past speakers have been authors, activists, academics and historians.

The link to sign up for our next monthly membership meeting will appear below when it is available for registration, generally 2-3 weeks before the meeting date.

After visiting the membership page, if you have further questions, please contact the Membership Committee via email: or see us at the Membership Desk at our next monthly membership meeting.

We look forward to meeting you soon!
