The World Subud Association consists of member countries; to quote the WSA bylaws: “the name of the international association of Subud national organizations is the World Subud Association”. It is member countries that ultimately provide direction for the association during World Congresses; again from the bylaws: “Congress is the supreme authority of the Association and its Affiliates”. Between congresses member countries participate and provide direction through their representatives on the World Subud Council.
Out of 86 countries where Subud is present in the world, 54 are member countries of the WSA. A list of countries with Subud members may be downloaded. Being a member of the World Subud Association implies the right and the responsibility of participating in the work of the association: to be present at and to vote resolutions at World Congress; to participate in the choice of the zonal representative of ones zone and to interact with the zone representative between World Congresses; to be able to give input through consultation with the Subud members in ones country. To become a member of the WSA, a country must accept the constitution and the bylaws of the WSA, which are binding, and be endorsed by World Congress.
