"If you joined the club you would have..." is the secon conditional, which means this situation is not realistic now, as in "If I had a lot of money now, I would buy a car." (I don't have a lot of money now)

"If you join the club you will" is the first conditional which means that we are talking about some realistic and possible situation, as in "If I rains, I will stay at home". (It's possible that it will rain, and then I will stay at home)
