The American Chess Association has instituted a new policy in conjunction with its rapidly expanding membership (ACA membership is only $1 for life, American Chess Monthly subscription is separate). Those wishing to sign up as the State affiliate , authorized to run ACA rated State championships in their State, can for a limited time get lifetime free affiliate for such. ACA games are rated free of charge by ACA headquarters and further State affiliates get an entire free page in the monthly 136 page American Chess Monthly to list event results, advertise free of charge upcoming events, etc. Contact the ACA at
firstname.lastname@example.org to see if a free State affiliate is still available in your State. This offer of free lifetime affiliate for the State chapter expires October 31, 2007, so contact ACA today!
