The ARRL Club Commission program is an ARRL Affiliated Club Benefit that provides benefits to your club when your club members become new ARRL Members or renew their existing ARRL Membership.
The best way to maximize this benefit is to hold quarterly membership drives. The slides below outline a process for holding quarterly membership drives and detail the benefits to your club and your members for holding these drives.

The <insert club name here> will be holding an ARRL Membership Drive at our <insert date here> meeting.
If your ARRL membership is going to run out in the next three months and you need to renew your membership OR if you are not a member of the ARRL and want to join to get all of the benefits, we will have membership forms for you to fill out. Just bring your dues payment and we will send your form and payment to the ARRL.
You can download the form at http://www.arrl.org/files/file/Clubs/2022%20Affiliated%20Club%20Membership%20Application.pdf if you want to print it out and fill it in and bring it to the meeting. Or we will have forms for you to fill out at the meeting.
Joining the ARRL or renewing your ARRL membership through our membership drive helps to support our club, and renewing early doesn’t penalize you in any way.
We will explain the benefits of ARRL Membership and the benefits to our club at the meeting.
If 5 new members sign up for ARRL memberships, we will hold a drawing to give away a brand new ARRL Handbook!

- A link to the ARRL Membership Form that your members can fill out to join the ARRL or renew their membership
- A link to the ARRL Club Commission Reconciliation Form that you can submit to the ARRL along with the membership forms and payments so that you can get your rebate.
- A set of slides that you can present at your ARRL Membership Drive to let your members know about the benefits of ARRL Membership and the benefits to your club when they join or renew through your membership drive.
