The main benefit of GCA membership is receiving the GCA Journal. Four issues per year are published: Spring (March), Summer (June), Fall (September) and Winter (December). Each full-color issue contains articles from some of the most knowledgeable people alive today about John Garand’s superb M1 rifle, complete with photographs. If you want to learn all you can about the M1, you will enjoy the GCA Journal. Also, the GCA is affiliated with the Civilian Marksmanship Program (CMP). Membership in GCA fulfills one of CMP’s requirements to make a purchase.
You can join online with a credit card (Get your Membership).  Or, you can submit a membership application by mail and pay by check/money order.  (Membership Form).  There is a basic, common sense member conduct and fraud policy and members must agree to abide by this policy.
New or renewing members will receive a receipt for membership dues and a wallet-size membership card. New members will also receive a packet containing a welcome letter, their first issue of the GCA Journal, and a data sheet for the M1. All current members are mailed the GCA Journal each quarter as new issues are published.
GCA membership costs $25 per year if you live in the U.S. If you live outside the U.S., the dues are $40 due to higher postage costs.
New memberships expire 12 months from when a new member joins. Example: Join on May 15; membership expires on June 1 next year. The expiration date is plainly printed on your membership card.
You will receive an official GCA membership card that will act as proof of your GCA membership status. IF you indicated “yes” on your membership application to release your information to Civilian Marksmanship Program, your information will be transmitted to CMP as part of a routine update that GCA provides to CMP, but you should always submit a copy of your membership card with all your CMP orders. Your membership card is your official proof of your GCA membership status.
A reminder notice will be mailed to you when it is time to renew, and your expiration date will be listed on your membership card. You can renew your membership online (Membership Page), or by mail. Download the latest renewal form here: Dues Renewal Form
