World Archery members include national archery federations, five continental archery federations – Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe and Oceania – associate international federations and associate members.
Member associations are national archery federations. Only one federation from each country or territory may become a World Archery member association. These members are autonomous organisations that manage their internal affairs with total independence and commit to abide by the World Archery constitution. All member associations are automatically members of their respective continental association as per their respective National Olympic Committee's continental association, except as otherwise determined by World Archery Executive Board.
Member associations may send athletes to World Archery events, including world championships, and vote at World Archery Congress.
World Archery’s five continental associations represent the five sporting continents: Africa, Americas, Asia, Europe and Oceania. They are responsible for promoting and encouraging archery within their respective regions under Olympic and World Archery principles, assisting in areas of event management, development and education – and organising continental championships, and maintaining continental records and results.
Continental associations may attend World Archery Congress but may not vote.
