This form can only be emailed if you are a newly licensed ham (within the last 12 months) making you eligible for a free membership.   This is due to an AARC ByLaws restriction that requires the member to be voted on by the membership before payment is accepted.  This means that at this time all other new applications must be by mail or in person.

 New and exsisting members are encouraged to read the ByLaws of the club.  The bylaws guide the club in many things. They define the membership classes, the number of officers and board of directors.  The standing committees that keep the club activities going foward.  from the purpose of the club to the duties of the officers and committees.     The bylaws were last updated in 2012 and a PDF copy is available by clicking the link below.
