Dear Bill:

     It gives me great pleasure to advise you that the ARRL Executive Committee has approved your club’s application for affiliation with the ARRL.  Your club is hereby declared a duly affiliated society with an affiliation date of March 3, 2007.

     We will generate a handsome charter to honor this important event.  We hope you will coordinate a “Charter Party,” and invite your Division Director, Section Manager (SM), or Affiliated Club Coordinator (ACC).  Addresses of Directors and SMs are on pages 15 and 16 of QST. 

     We ask that you keep these officials and us posted on your club’s activities.  Please send copies of any club news to your SM, ACC, Director and us.  Please feel free to contact us with any questions or concerns; we are all vitally interested in your progress.

     Your club is now eligible for the benefits of ARRL affiliation; we hope you will make full use of our services.  One of those services is our online booklet full of helpful information for clubs – the Active Club Online Primer at  Want to get your club more involved in public service?  Want to present programs that make meetings lively?  This online book permits quick access to hundreds of pages that can enhance the club and help it gain new members. 

Again, congratulations and welcome.  We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship with your club.
