I am curious about the differences in size, structure, and jurisdiction of skating federations in different countries.
For example, roughly how many employees does the federation employ? To what extent does it depend on / benefit from volunteers? How active is the federation in organizing domestic competitions or hosting international events? Press releases on competition results, updates on elite skaters? How involved is it in growing the next generation of skaters? Responsibilities of national headquarter and member clubs (if applicable)? And since it's FSU and trash can, politicking? ;D
Overviews of skating federations are extremely appreciated!!
