The National Button Society (NBS) is committed to the Education, Preservation, and Exhibition of buttons. Membership is open to individuals and organizations who support the mission of NBS.
NBS was founded in 1938, with many state and local button clubs forming soon thereafter. The first NBS button show was held the next year, in Chicago. Today, regional, state, and local clubs gather throughout the year and host button shows and sales. NBS has several thousand members from four continents and continues to enjoy gatherings and online events.
