For returning members seeking to rejoin the society, please stop in one of our monthly meetings or contact the RRS secretary.  We only ask that you update your contact information and become current in your membership dues for the current calendar year.  Send all updates to the RRS treasurer who is responsible for keeping the membership roster current.


Current policy is all dues for membership are payable at the start of each calendar year, January 1.  New members can have their dues pro-rated to that first partial year.

The society is not obligated to send reminders of dues payment.  

Members bear the sole responsibility for keeping their dues paid and their contact information accurate.

Dues payment is an essential requirement to maintain active membership status except for our lifetime members in the society.  

Active membership status is required for voting privileges regardless of membership status.

As of calendar year, 2021, membership dues are $40 per year; $20 per year for students

Dues can be paid to the society either by check or through our Paypal account by clicking the ‘Donate’ button on our website.  You can find the Reaction Research Society Paypal account by searching under Please make a note on your payment with your name and that it is for membership dues.  Also, please send email notice to the RRS treasurer who is responsible for tracking dues payments.


This is the RRS waiver and indemnification agreement which is positively essential to be signed and submitted to the RRS from all persons that attending launch or testing activities at the RRS MTA.  Please submit this form well in advance before the event to the RRS president.


Membership applications include signing a recurring indemnification agreement so current members need not sign an agreement with every MTA event,


The RRS also requires a photo release form to be signed for students participating at our events.  The RRS likes to share pictures of our events and their participants and reserves the right to use or limit any photos taken at the event on our website and publications.

For those requesting to test or launch at the RRS MTA, you must submit a Standard Record Form to the RRS president. This requirement also applies to new projects by current members. It is also strongly recommended that newcomers seeking to use the MTA attend a monthly meeting to describe your request. One form must be submitted for each test to be conducted and each vehicle to be launched. This form has the participant describe the key features of their test or vehicle what the submitter plans to accomplish. We keep a log of our tests to help benefit all of the Society. The RRS reserves the right to review all aspects of a test and launch and reserves the right to refuse a test request at its sole discretion. All tests must be supervised and approved in advance by the licensed pyrotechnic operator in charge of the event assigned by the society.


All test requests must include contact information including phone and email. All test requests must include a firm date of testing.  The RRS will work with the group to find the best time to schedule resources as needed.   Lastly, all test requests must be submitted to the RRS president

If you have any questions, please contact the RRS secretary or any of the executive council membership.
