Once you join, you are technically a member for life. However to remain an active voting member in our organization you must remain current in your dues. If you go inactive, making payment of dues automatically returns you to active voting status. Becoming a Member To become a member, you must first fill out a membership application form, either online or on paper. Dues, if applicable must be submitted. You must also receive approval from both the AARC Board of Directors and the General Membership.. This requires a vote typically held at one of the club's twice-a-month, regularly scheduled General Membership Meetings. Though you attendance is far from mandatory, you are invited to attend and encouraged to do so. We'd love the chance to meet you. The date on which the last of the conditions above are met, will be considered your first date of membership. Free Memberships We offer free first time memberships to those who either attend a license class at the AARC and subsequently pass their license or upgrade exam, or who simply pass a license or upgrade exam held at the AARC club house. Such memberships if granted in the first 9 calendar months of the year will expire on December 31st of that year. Otherwise, such memberships shall be free till December 31st of the following year. Paid Memberships If you do not qualify for a free membership above, the standard dues schedule applies. We offer individual, family and student memberships. Be aware, we do not pro-rate dues. If your date of membership is during the first 10 calendar months of the year, you membership will expire on December 31st of that year. Otherwise your membership will expire on December 31st of the following year. If you prefer to submit a printed form, please click on download Application Form.
