There are five membership classes with varying privileges:
Full Member: Granted use of the URFMSI repeaters, including personal autodial code, linking privileges and right to cast one vote on any motion at the quarterly membership meetings. Annual membership fees are $30. A PDF version of the operations manual will be sent to members in good standing if requested from an email account associated with their membership. A printed version may be ordered for $10.
Student Member: Same privileges as a full member. Limited to licensed full time students under the age of 20. Cost is $15 per year.
Family Member: A member of the immediate family of a Full or Life Member, who must have the same mailing address and must meet one of the following conditions: (1) Be a spouse, (2) Be under age eighteen, (3) Be under age 25 and a full-time student, or (4) Be any age if disabled or otherwise financially dependent upon and resident with the Full or Life Member. The Family Member has the same privileges as the Full Member, but no personal autodial code and no voting priviliges. Annual membership fees are $1 per year for the same dues period as the Full Member.
Senior Member: Extended to individuals who are age 70 or over. Granted use of the URFMSI repeaters, including personal autodial code, linking privileges and right to cast one vote on any motion at the quarterly membership meetings. Annual membership fees are $20 for the first year in the URFMSI, which includes the cost of an operations manual, and $15 per year thereafter.
Life Member: An honorary status conferred on a Full Member by two-thirds vote of the members present at an Annual Meeting of the membership after nomination by the Life Member Committee. There is no annual membership fee for this type of membership.
Each member’s dues termination date is shown on the membership rosters in the last column headed “THRU” and in the upper-right corner of the mailing label on any mail sent to a member as well as on each membership card. The bylaws require cancellation of membership if dues remain unpaid at the end of the second month after the dues termination date. Rejoining after cancellation is on a “new member” basis.
