The annual subscription is GBP 10 per member. Nations with very small membership may request a reduction.

The association is run by two committees, the main committee and a technical committee. The technical committee is informal and does not meet. Its business is carried out by post, fax or E mail. The chairman is an ex-officio member of the main committee.

The main committee is elected at the annual general meeting which is held during the world championship. Officers and members are elected for two years but at the end of their two year period are eligible for re-election.
