Chapter 170 is dedicated to furthering high quality Horological Education, i.e. the training of professional Watchmakers and Clockmakers worthy to maintain and repair the great horological heritage of mankind.
Our focus is on finding, motivating, encouraging and training the next generation of horologists, both by supporting specific vocational guidance initiatives, and by educating the public at large - but especially the young generation - on matters horological.
The Chapter also specifically supports the educational mission of the NAWCC School of Horology in Columbia PA, including its courses in Clock Repair, Watch Repair and Horological Machining.
Membership to NAWCC Chapter 170 is open to any
member of NAWCC interested in the goals of the chapter.
The chapter also serves as the official "Alumni Organisation" of the NAWCC School of Horology and anybody who has taken courses there, or has graduated from the school is encouraged to become a chapter member..
