Dear Governors,

We need to select a Head of Canadian Delegation at 2011 NAYCC - I would think, even before we select official players.
In this case the Head of Canadian Delegation could manage the players' applications and the process of players selection.

Moreover, a few days ago I got email from Aris Marghetis:

I am looking for the leaders of the Canadian delegation to the 2011 North American Youth Chess Championship just outside New York near the end of June. I am in discussions with the organizers regarding working there as an arbiter, and I figure there might be some opportunities to combine expenses and/or other conveniences with Canadian attendees and their families.

So, it's a good time to make our minds regarding this position.

If you know somebody who is interested in this position, please let me know.
