A national federation, bodybuilding or fitness clubs and other sports organizations : who wants to affiliate with IBFF must provide an Entrance Form signed by the President. When IBFF receive completed entrance form, the affiliation is accepted.
If more than one team of the same Country request to affiliate, they all are invited to take part of IBFF.
The Executive Committee can accept, refuse, suspend or cancel the affiliation of a member of IBFF.
The annual member fee is 0 dollars.
A members affiliated with IBFF can also be affiliated with other international federations.
But there is more to the IBFF : There is no politics involved in the judging process, in the promotion of competitors or in the "control" of where athletes can compete. If they wish to, IBFF members can compete wherever they please. It is their choice. But once they've had the opportunity to compete in the IBFF shows, why would they want to compete anywhere else anyway.
