    AMA Leader Club Program Modifications
    April 21, 2007, AMA’s Executive Council modified the longrunning, well-received AMA Leader Club Program to provide access to clubs that have been denied participation in the past. The program’s required activities have been a hindrance to some otherwise worthy clubs being recognized for their efforts. The current requirements are as follows.

    1.  Clubs must have been chartered by AMA for a minimum of five years.
    2.  Club membership must be open to all AMA members and not limited to a certain number. 
    3.  Clubs must develop and post Safety and Operational Rules at their flying sites. 
    4.  Clubs must file a copy of Safety and Operational Rules at AMA Headquarters. 
    5.  A club’s flying field must have separate areas for fliers and spectators, clearly marked as such. 
    6.  The AMA Safety Code must be posted and visible at the club field.

The modification is that for a club to be considered for Leader Club status, its district vice president may waive one of the preceding requirements.

The revised application is posted at www.modelaircraft.org. Under Membership, go to AMA Documents (PDF), and then 708. Contact Erin Dobbs at if you have any questions.  The revised application - PDF document 708 can be found here.

If your club is interested in qualifying as an AMA Leader Club, please contact Marketing Partner Lead, 5161 E. Memorial Drive, Muncie IN 47302; Tel: (765) 287-1256, ext. 272.
