Club charter renewals
The March 31 deadline for clubs to renew their annual charter status has come and gone and there are nearly 400 clubs that have not submitted their renewal documents for the 2016 charter year.
Life becomes busy and sometimes things slip through the cracks. Perhaps that’s what happened to your club renewal. There’s no need to panic! If you are paying by MasterCard, Visa, or Discover card, simply fax the forms to (765) 286-3303, or email the forms to expedite the process.
Have you misplaced the forms? We can help. Send us a brief email and we will forward the appropriate pre-filled paperwork to you. Or you can use the forms in the Club Chartering Guide to get the process started. Please note that this is a PDF document that will allow you to enter information and either print or email the completed form.

Clubs have expressed concerns about the recent change from a calendar-year membership to a year-to-date membership for individual AMA members. Although this will be a new experience for all, the AMA staff wants to assist all clubs to make this transition as smooth as possible. We will provide monthly email notifications to clubs, alerting them of club members with upcoming AMA membership expirations. For this to be effective, we ask that you please regularly update your AMA club roster. The easiest, and most efficient, way is to make any changes on our online club roster located at www.modelaircraft.org/membersonly.aspx.
To access the roster, you must be logged into the website and have your Web account linked to your AMA membership. This allows the system to recognize you as a club officer. We’ve included a brief video in the April issue of Ground Control that will help you with these steps.
