I am just a parent of a 12 year old boy who expressed an interest in
learning how to play chess.  I was never taught how myself and felt a bit
embarrassed about it.  I found this website and I must say I was surprised
to find out how excited I was to play once I went through the steps.  It
was set up in such a way, it just made it so easy to understand.  I copied
off the whole thing so I could go back to it as a reference as I taught my
son as well.  We have been practicing ever since...and even though we are
far from being masters, I can honestly say we both look forward to playing
this wonderful game.  If it wasn't for your visual and interactive way of
presenting the rules of Chess, I would have given up on the whole thing. 
I'm not a member of your organization, but I just wanted to let you know
it is because of this website that we have become avid players of chess.
