    Some major news today as we're going to be live on the Internet (Boards 1-3) thanks to Chess NS.

    As far as I know we have no restrictions on Canadian Youth players attending the Pan-Am YCC, only the WYCC and WCCC.

    This money was applied against the Olympic expenses, and thus doesn't show in my summary above.

    I don't know anything about this. There is a new program where countries can receive development grants. We have not applied so far.

    There is a lot of setup to be done, some of which can be done by the company, but some we have to do. We've had one volunteer this week - probably a couple more would be good.

    No. I had actually meant to get this on the agenda, but slipped up - so thanks for bringing it up. This has to be made into a project (probably 18 months) with a "real" Project Manager that does not...
  9. 6X. Late submissions for Committee members

    I will nominate Felix Dumont for Kalev Pugi committee, he just found out about the AGM (not a voting member). He has been Chairman the past several years.

    I assume the President can accept names...

    I don't think any of us at the CFC totally understand the FQE business model, but we have understood that a grant is given from the Provincial Government the purpose of which is to assist the FQE...

    I would like to nominate Serge Archambault (Quebec) for Women's Coordinator. He is willing to stand.

    As a result of the CSTA conference we are making good contacts now. Of course the CYCC/CO is everyone's focus as it has the most participants, room nights, etc.

    One of the issues is that the organizers wouldn't know if the FQE players would need CFC memberships or not (even in the CYCC) until a new agreement is in place. As we have said, effective Jan 1, CFC...

    I am nominating Serge Archambault for this position. He is willing to stand.

    I'm going to state the obvious here: any bid for the CYCC/CO is probably going to be tangled up in the CFC/FQE negotiations until they are settled.
  16. Again, I want to stress that this bid was...

    Again, I want to stress that this bid was approved by the CFC Executive three or four weeks ago, as there certain deadlines the organizers needed to meet and we had received no competing bids. There...

    I was referring more to the idea that over time some of the accumulated surpluses from year to year would be spent - so for example if we ran a deficit of $10-15K next year it wouldn't be a cause for...

    CFC Surplus

    If you are following the CFC AGM, you will see that we had a "nice" surplus of $15K for this past fiscal year. However a Non-Profit organization is expected to have a "$0" surplus on average (ie over...

    I will nominate Lloyd Lombard for the 4 year term (assuming he is willing to stand). While Lloyd is probably not well known outside of NS, I can vouch for his value to this group over the past 4...

    This stuff is supposed to be in the Incoming Meeting - but I think there are still some topics missing there. Ken should present his bid by the end of the meeting so it can be voted on / approved.

    Oops. I didn't read very carefully !

    Two Olympiads.

    On board = In agreement, as opposed to "on the board"

    I think the Board is well served by having as many provinces as possible represented, but yes, they have to be democratically voted on.

    Is this a one-time thing ? if so it should be stated. Normally the Women's Zonal is held fairly close to the Olympiad, while the Open/Men's is held the year prior. These differences are due to the...

    4.L. Treasurer's Report

    We had a healthy increase in membership and rating fee revenue this year. Some of that "surplus" money has gone towards the Olympic team and having a healthy start on the 2020 Olympic Fund campaign. ...
