The National Cryptologic Museum Foundation is a not for profit 501©(3) organization that depends almost entirely on volunteer help to perform its mission and functions. There are only three salaried persons who work for the Foundation and they serve as administrative and office staff. All of the officers of the Foundation, committee chairpersons and other personnel are volunteers. We, therefore, urge anybody with an interest in cryptology to consider volunteering his or her services to the Foundation. If you are interested in volunteering, note the specific needs detailed below or visit the Governance link and read the descriptions for the various committees to see where you might fit.  Please contact Mary Faletto, our Senior Administrator, at (301) 688-5436 to arrange an interview if you interested.
