    Just a friendly reminder to all of you especially first-time voting members - that except for special "in camera" agenda items (there are none in the Outgoing or Incoming meetings so far this year) - ALL proceedings are viewable by the general public though you do have to be a voting member to post or to vote.

    I would like to welcome you to the annual general meeting of the incoming voting members for the Chess Federation of Canada. For some of you this will be your first meeting as a voting member. I welcome you and thank you for your commitment to chess governance and for volunteering to be a voting member. Canadian chess is built on the backs of the volunteers who organize and run the tournaments and clubs and events which give us a reason to have a CFC in the first place. In this meeting we will have elections for the officer and executive positions and various committees.

    The past year has not been without disappointment in that there were no bidders for the Canadian Open despite many attempts to kindle interest. For next year we have received indications of interest from two cities at least one of which will hopefully bear fruit. For the following year - we have received a very strong bid from Sault St. Marie with excellent support from the local government and a very attractive accommodation package which should encourage people to play, especially for those who register early. I think that for 2018 and beyond we should strive to have bids in place for important events two years ahead of time so that we don't find ourselves out of time in the organization of one of our national events.

    There was one discussion item added under new business which is a discussion of the formation of a Youth Committee.

    We have much to discuss and consider for this meeting. Let us begin.

    Today at 1800 ET is the close of nominations - we have open positions where we've not yet had nominations so PLEASE read the forum announcement for today.

    The official place for nominations is in the various nomination threads - ASAP following 2100 tonight I will be announcing those acclaimed and setting up "Voting Booths" for contested positions.

    Please do not post nominations anywhere other than in the nomination threads as they won't be counted.
