About the image on this page


This poster illustrates how the AFMS is composed of regional federations of clubs made up of individual members, and how everyone comes together by doing their part to form a strong national organization. Dale Miller, SCFMS, devised this chart as a simple explanation of the federation chain in 2001. The image was slightly revised in 2021 for the AFMS website.
