    At last night’s meeting, it was mentioned that we’ll be able to join/renew ARRL membership through the club.

    Any hint as to when this will be possible?

    It sounded like it could be a while…

    Is there an end-around method so that the club can get credit ??

    thanx

    Hi Joe,

    I want to try to accelerate this option to join thru Nashua ARC.  Looking into it by this weekend.

    I used this process at my last renewal and was quite easy with benefit to the club.

    Mike – how did you do your renewal in a way that helped our club? Can you give us some details so that we can figure out what our members need to do?

    Thanks and 73,

    Hi Mike,

    I had a little time here at work this morning to look into this a bit before my day starts.  I called ARRL to find out how to handle the paperwork, so please let me know if this process sounds like what you experienced.

    1)  New or Renewal ARRL Member fills out the first page or “Membership Application” of the attached form… ARRL-Affiliated-Club-Membership-Application , member remits form and payment to our Club.  The person at HQ I talked to mentioned something about renewal notices that a person gets might be used to submit to Club too (?).  I can’t remember what a renewal notice looks like in the mail, I’ve been a Life member for quite some time.
    2)  The Club gathers up New or Renewals, fill out the Reconciliation Form, and retain the benefit amount, when mailing in the “package” of applications.

    If all the above sounds good, then I can see the process internal to the Club working like this:

    – Member to remit form and full amount, as shown on form to the Club (cash or check made to “Nashua ARC”); Club cuts a check to ARRL, minus what it gets to retain, when sending in the package.  Apps/package to be processed monthly.

    I do see a place on the Membership App, where a member can submit credit card info to pay the ARRL dues (minus retention fee), and member giving the Club the retention amount separately.  I can understand the hesitancy to put credit card info out on forms, so I am not expecting this to be the way to pay.

    Remitting payment to the Club via PayPal hasn’t been worked out yet.  So, cash and check are the only options right now.

    Thanks for researching this Wayne. Is this something that we might want to consider doing through our website via an online form and PayPal?
