Nomad (noun) wanderer in search of food. The Nomads are an At-Large chapter, open to all SMART members. We are a social group of fun (and food) lovers rather than a geographically defined or common interest chapter.

Nomads get together at a "pre-muster" just before the annual National Muster and at a "post-muster" after the National Muster. We are famous for our 4 pm Attitude adjustment during these get-togethers. Between our National-associated get-togethers, we look up other members during our travels. These "mini-musters" range from lunch to spending time together in a campground. Some are more formal gatherings of as many as are in the area!

Nomads keep in touch by a quarterly newsletter, a website, email, and other e means. Our dues are a big $5 per year.
