Two weeks after it began accepting members on March 19th, the American Cricket Federation (ACF) reported that it had registered its first fifty members.  

'This is the first opportunity for US cricketers and cricket organizations to take charge of US Cricket through a truly representative body of all stakeholders. Add your voice, participate in a true democratic election this year,' ACF said in a media release announcing the milestone.

“Such early volume is heartening” commented Mike Thomas, ACF's acting Treasurer. “Together with the broad geographic spread of applicants, it gives the first indication of the extent to which there is significant resonance with the ACF’s vision, goals and principles of governance.”

The ACF was founded by a large group of experienced cricketers and administrators united in the belief that US cricket needed and deserved a new direction. Incorporated on October 9, 2012, it is currently managed by a Steering Committee whose members and biographies may be found on the ACF website.

From its inception, ACF drew praise for its inclusive approach to membership.   Cricket enthusiasts can become members of the organization for as little as $10 per year.   Membership forms have been made available online together with an online payment mechanism.

'[ACF's] inclusive spirit mandates the provision for several classes of members and also recognizes specific designations such as Women, College, Youth and Softball cricketers, besides Clubs and Development Administrators in order to provide them with a voice,' the organization noted in its media release announcing the adoption of its constititution.

'Our needs for development funds are great, but so are the cumulative numbers of players in the U.S. and their Clubs and the Leagues they play in. A united investment in the future of US Cricket not only will bring about change quicker, but will also provide the opportunity for you to make a tangible contribution toward that change,' the organization noted.
