H-Scholar is sponsored by the National Coalition of Independent Scholars. Its purposes are: assisting independent scholars to share their work and research interests with the larger community, enhancing their productivity by promoting the sharing of information and resources, facilitating communication between independent and academically affiliated scholars with shared interests and concerns, providing information about issues of general interest to all working scholars regardless of their discipline or situation and creating a forum for discussion of specific scholarly issues across disciplinary boundaries.

Thank you for your reply. I’ve been a member of NCIS for several years, and I used to belong to the AHA, although I found that its focus on teaching in traditional academic institutions meant that it wasn’t the best match for my interests at the time.
I can assure Karen that independent scholar organizations such as The National Coalition of Independent Scholars (NCIS), which supports H-Scholar, judge their members by the quality of their scholarship and not whether they have doctorates. Check the NCIS website for its membership qualificationa and what it has to offer, and also for its list of affiliated groups in the U.S. and Australia.
