    Thanks Vlad.

    As former President of the CFC before your term and as a Executive Vice-President for 10 years - I will accept this nomination and stand for the "Board".

    Some continuity with the new elected Executive would be a valuable thing.

    Mark S. Dutton, I.A., I.O.

    It's still not clear if this was meant as a YES or NO vote or open to others to throw their hat in the ring for this extra "Director" position.

    Vlad. Still waiting for the interpretation on this.

    The NFP act allows for a corporation to have a minimum of 3 and of maximum of 10 Directors. This is equivalent to what we called the Executive / Board of Directors, previously. We have had 7 for quite some time.

    By all means if there are other nominations let us hear them.

    I would have thought the term "Nomination" in the name of this thread would indicate other nominations are welcome but if it has to be explicitly stated so be it.

    The two required items in a nomination are the name of the person nominated and some indication (and the CFC has always been flexible on what this means) that he/she accepts his/her nomination and is willing to serve if elected. A seconder to a nomination is NOT needed for the nomination to be valid.

    Legally as previously stated, if you're signed into the meeting you are presumed to have accepted any nomination if you do not specifically decline it. A nominee NOT present has either 10 or 15 days (I'd have to go back to the act to verify which) to accept / decline a nomination.

    For myself if there are two candidates that are nominated one who has accepted and one not I almost always vote for the confirmed nominee unless I have strong reasons otherwise. That's me - as they say "your mileage might vary"

    Lyle. Is it possible to edit the name of the thread, to make it more understandable.

    Nomination for 7th/General Director Position (formerly Past-President) .... or something.

    As a person from the GTCL I DEMAND an apology.

    The issue of FIDE election goes much deeper... I'll publish soon everything regarding it - almost done!

    I've just copied one of the posts from the Chess Talk:

    One of the posters has written that he likes the incumbent because he gets his hands dirty. Here is the post I've mentioned: "Someone who gets their hands dirty usually makes a better EMPLOYEE than leader. Vlad himself recognizes this each time he talks about his work with kids in Windsor. Continuing as CFC President would actually diminish Vlad's contributions to Canadian chess: the Windsor kids would suffer without him, and the CFC membership would suffer with him.

    What' needed for leadership is flexibility, openness, honesty and integrity, people skills and Vlad has none of these".

    Unfortunately you've identified one of the "features" of vBulletin I am most annoyed with.

    Among other things there's a typo in one of the Thread titles that I would have fixed for the Executive member who posted it had I been able to do so. A simple typo but....

    (As opposed to the actual body of a message which can always be editted both by the author of the message and by the moderator - in practice about the ONLY time I do this is with an Agenda that Vlad and I have been jointly working on - and when I edit his stuff it's almost always formatting to improve readability and nothing else)

    Once again, we are allowed 3-10 directors. We had 7 under the old rules, so it makes sense that we would continue with 7 unless a vote was held to change this number.

    Lyle, as Moderator I would ask you to consider removing non-relevant posts from this thread, if they continue to appear .....
