RAC Bulletin – 2010-038E – RAC Maple Leaf Operators Membership and changes to International Membership fees
The RAC Board is currently looking at the RAC membership rate structure. Among the changes to be made is the introduction of a new
membership class and the adjustment of international rates; stay tuned in future bulletins for more exciting developments.
Many members have told us that they place a high value on RAC activities and have asked for a premium membership. RAC is pleased to
announce the new Radio Amateurs of Canada Maple Leaf Operators Membership. Members in the first year will receive a signed RAC Maple
Leaf Operators Certificate, be listed in TCA, be recognized on the RAC website, and receive a RAC pin with their call sign and more. The RAC Maple Leaf Operators Membership is $100 per year and is available on automatic renewal. Members who want to can .top up. their
existing multi-year memberships at $50/yr. Our RAC office will be happy to help out members who want to upgrade their membership.
The cost of mailing TCA to the United States is roughly equal to the current annual membership fee. The new rate for US memberships is
$90 which now covers the mailing costs associated with sending TCA to the US.
The cost of international mailing other than to the US considerably exceeds the current annual membership fee. The new rate for International memberships is $130 which now covers the mailing costs associated with sending TCA Internationally [other than to the United States].
These two rate increases apply only where TCA is mailed. Memberships without TCA are not effected [family, blind, etc.].
Stay tuned for more membership developments!
