    I'm looking for the best (have most to offer) organizations to join. If you could choose your top 3 organizations to be a member of in support of Amateur Radio, which would they be?

    I suggest you support the K8ERV old age and retirement fund.
    The benefits are minimal but the satisfaction is good.

    The local club in my county is the most important to me.

    I am a Life Member of the ARRL.

    I pay dues at about 6 "local" clubs.
    I am not really "Active" with any of them, but do help support them by paying dues. :)

    It really depends on your interests. There are tons of general interest clubs, both local and global, and I'd encourage you to join a local club as a starting point. From there, there are DX clubs, CW clubs, WAS Nets, Satellites, Contesting, VHF\UHF, Fox Hunting, etc, etc, etc. You will get the most benefit from an organization that focuses on your interests in the hobby. The answer will be different for every op.

    You need , if you want an answer that works for you , give enough info to answer the question ?
    National , local , age / group etc. , mode , interests etc.
    I never bothered to count , but choosing 3 out of many thousands does not make sense - without some measure / interests .

    Thanks for all the comments.

    I'm a member of a good local club that is active throughout the year. I was wanting to get feedback on something like national or international organizations that are worth paying yearly membership fees to (ARRL and such).
