Clubs and individual membersEdit

All individual memberships are made through the clubs and are on a calendar year basis with the individual being a member of only one club for any particular calendar year.

  • 380 clubs
  • 14,184 individual members
  • 856 instructors (a part (subset) of the individual members)
  • 366 arbiters (a part (subset) of the individual members)

Since memberships are on an annual basis as opposed to a rolling basis, complete 2012 statistics will be not available until December 31, 2012.
