Our members hail from around the world — Scotland, N. Ireland, England, Australia, New Zealand, Italy, Germany, Canada, and the United States of America.

We welcome MacAulays of all spellings (such as Aulay, MacAlley, MacAulay, MacAuley, MacAully. MacPhedran, MacPhedron, McAuley, McCallie, McCauley, McCawley, etc.) to be members of the Clan.  Clan MacAulay, one of the most active and democratic Scottish Clan Societies in the world today, wants to welcome YOU to the Clan.  Are you yearning to learn more about your MacAulay ancestry and to connect with MacAulay kin worldwide? JOIN US!

Membership is also open to the spouse or domestic partner of a MacAulay or those who are part of a MacAulay Sept, and, in keeping with Scottish traditions, those who just want to be associated with the Clan MacAulay, the greatest family in all of Scotland. (Understandably, we are a wee bit prejudiced.)

Clan members from around the globe come together biennially for a traditional Gathering in Scotland or other location associated with MacAulays. (From the menu, select “Gatherings”  to see information about past and current events). The Clan is represented at many of the Scottish Games and Gatherings in North America. Members set up hospitality tents at these events and offer all MacAulay attendees the camaraderie of kindred souls as well as information on Clan history and news.

As a member, you will benefit from the rights and privileges due to all loyal Clan Members.  We have a whole list of them below!  Best of all, you will have fun while connecting with MacAulays around the world!

We offer several membership levels with reasonable dues.  Memberships also make wonderful and unique gifts to friends and family

Get started by completing and submitting the ON-LINE MEMBERSHIP APPLICATION.   Dues payment is processed by PayPal, a secure payment method which allows you to pay by bank draft or credit card.  PayPal also takes care of exchange rates and currency conversions.  You do NOT need a PayPal account; you may pay as a guest.
