FAQ New ARRL Affiliated Club Commission Program.

Q. What is the ARRL Affiliated Club Commission Program?
A. The ARRL Affiliated Club Commission Program allows ARRL Affiliated Clubs to earn a commission on new and renewing regular memberships.
Q. How much commission does the club earn for new and renewing members?
A. Each new ARRL member earns the club a $15.00 commission. New members are defined as never having been a member or a returning member that has not been a member for two years. Each renewal now earns the club a $5.00 commission. There is no limit to the amount a club can earn in this program.
Q. What is the process for the club?
A. The club will follow the process for both new and renewal applications
   1. Each new or renewing ARRL member should fill out the membership application for Affiliated Clubs.
   2. Payment in FULL can be made to ARRL by check, credit card, or cash.
   3. The club then sends all applications with FULL payment along with the Club Commission Reconciliation Form to ARRL for processing.
   4. The memberships are processed once received by ARRL, and the club receives the commission.
   5. Commission payments can be made by check to the club or Direct Deposit.
Q. Can the club keep the commission from the applications before sending them to ARRL?
A. No, the applications must have full payment, and the commission is then paid to the club.
Q. Can the member combine the Club Commission with a premium or incentive offered separately by ARRL or at a Hamfest?
A. No, the member will not be eligible to receive a gift or incentive if the club collects a commission on the membership.
Q. Which memberships are eligible for a commission?
A. Only regular memberships. Multiyear memberships earn only one commission. Life, Family, International, Blind, and Student memberships are not eligible for a commission.
Q. How quickly should the club expect to get a commission check?
A. A club should receive a payment within two to three weeks of ARRL receiving the forms.
Q. If we have a question on how to process the forms, who do we contact?
A. Questions can be directed to or contact Member Services at ARRL.
