To quote myself:

Chapters are like mini-organisations, and there's lots a good founder can do with the tools available. If you join a chapter, you will have the oppurtunity to get involved in communities and meet new people. Of course, it all depends on your personal tastes. There might be some chapter styles that you want, or you may have no interest whatsoever. You'd have to see a chapter first and make your decision (use the 7th column main page's search functions or follow a link in a member's signature).
Be advised: chapters can be VERY different. Just because you see one active, with great features, doesn't mean every one will be like that (in fact, quite opposite).[/quote]
Psycho's note: the 7th column consists of the said chapters. It is a giant fanclub, chapters are mini-fanclubs.
