    Hello, I'm new to blogging posts but I've been following Susan's blogs and the USCF discussions. I'm very interested in chess and and improving my game. I have a couple of questions. 1) What are the benefits of joining the USCF? 2) Will a member joining now be able to vote in the up coming elections?
    Thank you, Paul (MIFL-Merritt Island, FL)

    I highly recommend joining if you're serious about chess. Look here: http://beta.uschess.org/frontend/section_212.php
    for a more complete list of benefits.

    Yes, you will be able to vote in the upcoming election if you are at least 16 years old and a member at the time of the voting this summer.

    mifl: I've been a member of USCF since 1972 and a Life Member since the mid-80's. You can get basic membership benefit information at the USCF web page. I would add, however, that as is the case with most organizations, one's "benefit" is linked to one's activity in the organization. ONe of the problems contributing to the issues at USCF right now is apathy among many members. A very small, powerful, and vocal group of people has essentially taken over organized US chess because most of the membership doesn't vote in the elections and some that do don't really know about the candidates. Susan is trying to inspire people to get involved and work for change
