Subud United States of America, Inc. consists of seven regions which are further divided into centers and smaller groups. Some regions have more centers than other regions while some regions consist of more isolated members that are not associated with any center.
There are currently about 60 Subud centers plus many more smaller groups throughout the USA with a total active membership of approximately 2000 men and women. While there is no fee for receiving the latihan, members are, however, asked to contribute towards overhead expenses such as maintaining the local premises and supporting the wider association. That amount is left to the individual.
Subud USA has an annual national meeting. Local and regional gatherings are also held throughout the year to meet the needs of the Subud membership. Many of these events are suitable for children as well as adults.
The association is governed by a board of directors that includes a National Committee, Regional Chairs, and Chairs of the Affiliate Associations. National Helpers assist the functioning of the governing board in receiving guidance from the inner self. Additionally, Subud USA has a national office in Beltsville, Maryland to help carry out the work to serve the members living in this country.
Subud USA affirms its members’ rights to participate in, benefit from, and contribute to all activities, programs, and services of the association with dignity and respect, free from discrimination on the basis of race, national origin, sex, religion, color, age, disability, sexual orientation, genetic information, parental status, and free from sexual harassment.
