im wondering where a CCGM would come from, thanks
The short answer is "no". The USCF is not an "offical" correspondence chess federation, although they are offically America's national chess organization. A more offical correspondence chess federation in my opinion in America would be ICCF-US. With the dawn of the internet age however, the term "offical organization" has become hazy. Sites like Red Hot Pawn with more active members than the USCF also have some "offical" claims as well. As far as CCGM is concerned, the correspondence Grand Master title is awarded by some organization(s) or other, but I can't tell you much about it, (since there is little chance of me becoming one!
