The National Association of Rocketry (NAR)
has been around since 1957. At one time, the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA)
was pretty tightly joined with them in covering model rocketry events and promoting
model rocketry. In fact, for while there was space allotted in American Aircraft
Modeler, AMA's monthly magazine, for model rocketry. This NAR membership is an example

National Aeronautic Association (NAA) delegates
authority for aeromodeling and spacemodeling to the
Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA), who
has in turn delegated Spacemodeling (model rocketry) to the NAR.
