While ARRL supports Amateur Radio at the national level, the bulk of the work -- in public service, promoting Amateur Radio, peer support and just good fellowship -- occurs in the more than 2000 radio clubs around the country.
ARRL affiliated clubs can take advantage of certain benefits which are only available thanks to the large membership and widespread services of the ARRL. Four types of clubs can affiliate with the ARRL: local amateur radio clubs; regionally or nationally organized amateur radio groups; local school or youth groups, or amateur radio clubs in homes for the elderly or disabled; and club councils.
For more detailed information, see the ARRL's web site.
