CIARA/HCARES Meetings, membership and dues


CIARA logo

CIARA is a general-interest radio club that is operated by Hamilton County Amateur Radio Emergency Services, Inc. While we usually meet in Noblesville (Hamilton County), membership is open to anyone who is interested. We welcome both new and returning or renewing members.
Full membership is available to anyone holding an FCC Amateur Radio license. Full members may vote and hold office.
Associate membership is available to all interested persons. Associate members may not hold office, providing that it is consistent with FCC regulations.

HCARES dues are collected on a calendar year basis. $20.00 per year for an individual, $30.00 per year for a family membership, and $5 per year for students. The balance of the year when someone joins is no charge. You may pay at any meeting or fill out the membership form and mail it to the treasurer, as listed in the newsletter.

    CIARA meets more or less monthly, but not during the summer. Some are joint meetings with RACES. We also have a lunch together in December.
