Become a Member (or Renew!)

Our club does not have any membership quotas and we are always ready to welcome new members.

We are excited to continue our online member application & renewal process! This speeds up member processing and enables self-service member card printing too!

All NVRC Members must be have an active membership with the Academy of Model Aeronautics (AMA) at a Full Membership level, NOT Park Flyer! Your AMA membership status will be verified.

All model aircraft and multi-rotor pilots need to be registered with the FAA at the FAA Drone ZoneThe Exception for Recreational Flyers registration process is perfectly acceptable for most pilots. This is a US legal requirement, and not specifically related to NVRC membership.

Payments

PayPal

Payment by PayPal is several days quicker to process compared to mail-in payments. We have integrate PayPal payments directly into our website, so make your selection from the plan options below.

Mail-In Payments

Mail-in Payments are also acceptable. Make NVRC Dues checks payable to NVRC and include “NVRC Dues and your AMA number” in the memo field. Mail checks to:

NVRC Membership Dues

Do I qualify for Junior / Senior rates?

Rather than collect birthday information ourselves, we follow the AMA Membership rule for this.
So if you have a Junior or Senior AMA card, that’s the NVRC membership type you should use.
