ARRL Affiliated Club: As an ARRL Affiliated Club, the club receives a commission for every new ARRL membership and renewal we submit to ARRL Headquarters and get to retain a portion of the dues for each regular membership submitted.
Clubs retain $15 for each new membership OR lapsed membership (of two years or more). A NEW MEMBER is defined as any individual who has never been a member of ARRL or any individual who has not retained a membership for two or more calendar years prior to the application submission.
Clubs retain $5 for each renewal. A RENEWING MEMBER can renew at anytime, even before their current membership term expires.
You can download the ARRL Affiliated Club Membership form here.
Once downloaded, complete the form and get it to the club Treasurer along with a check made out to 'Sachse Amateur Radio Association' and we will submit your ARRL membership application/renewal to ARRL Headquarters. (NOTE: ARRL Headquarters is working on getting an on-line version working so that you can go directly to them and the ARRL will send the club a check for any new or renewed memberships.)
