Just find meets around you first, and then when you notice what is offered around you join that fed if you have to. A lot of the times you will be able just to lift in unsanctioned meets and won't have to worry about membership cards. USPF is not very popular in my area so it doesn't have much appeal to me, but SSA is so that is what I would most likely join. Your just going to lift raw in whatever meets you go to right, or are you going to be a gear whore? I wish the USPF would have a meet around me, I actually have a good shot at breaking the 220 juniors bench record in a single ply shirt but its not worth flying across the country for.Muscle Pharm Rep

The USPF is a single ply federation. What state are you from? Have you tried powerliftingwatch? They have a forum/fed/gym directory for every state.

You read wrong. They have single ply and raw. Where are you from in Texas. Go to www.badattitudegym.com. They are a gym from Dallas that has lots of elite lifters that compete in the APF, AAPF, NASA, IPA, etc. They can point you in the right direction since they are from the area and have years of experience in that respect. The quality of a federation depends on the state and its respective chairmen. I have not heard much about the USPF in Texas, but I know NASA and the APF run lots of meets there.
