Affiliate members are groups who have a democratic structure and constitution. Traditionally these tend to be supporters’ clubs (independent or official) and supporters’ trusts.
Associates are non-democratically structured fans’ groups who would like to associate themselves to the FSA. They can still participate in the FSA’s democratic processes but, like individual members, they only have one vote (as opposed to five votes for affiliates). Fanzines, websites, and blogs tend to fall into this category, along with non-democratically structured fans’ groups.
We are in the process of updating our member records and will list all affiliates and associates soon.
