    B) Go Membership platform

    C) Developments and Directions in Canadian Chess
    D) CFC Handbook
    E) Discussion item with regard to youth membership fees, rating fees and YCC fees
    The following motion was received after the deadline for including motions and providing the requisite notice. It can be taken up for discussion at the Spring meeting and depending on the results of discussion may be taken up at the AGM in August.
    I like to submit motions to increase our revenues as follows:

    Increase Jr. membership fees to match adult membership fees.
    Increase Jt. Rating fees from $0.50 to $1.00
    Increase YCC qualifiers fees to $5 per player, and $2 of this go to general revenues

    I believe the chess parents will not object to increasing membership fees $1 a month. It is insignificant relative to the cost of educating their kid for lessons and other activities.
    With the extra money we can do more things.

    See the stats:

    Jr Members are almost as many as adult members in total.
    We have more paying Junior members in Ontario than adult members. 555 vs 486
    We put more effort in organizing the juniors.

    Best Regards,

    Undriadi Benggawan
    CFC Junior Coordinator

    F) Discussion Item: Complaint about the rudeness of CFC president Vlad Drkulec toward Neil Frarey on Chesstalk
    I hereby submit the following motion:

    Whereas on November 24th at 2:25PM, Vlad Drkulec, President of the Chess Federation of Canada, publicly compared someone to a person with autism as a form of insult on the chesstalk message board, and continues to repeatedly use public forums to insult and attack the character of persons;

    Be it resolved that this behavior is not acceptable of the person representing the public face of the Chess Federation of Canada, and that the President should post a public apology for his actions, or step down from the Office of President of the Chess Federation of Canada.

    Garland Best

    G) New business

    6A. Motion-
    The Saskatchewan Chess Federation would like to submit a motion for the 2018 Spring Online Meeting:

    1) Starting in 2019, every junior player from a province that hosts the CYCC is eligible to play in the CYCC provided he or she took part in a local CYCC qualification tournament for which the organizer had remitted the fees to the CFC (i.e., any child who played, regardless of the result achieved, will have the right to go to the CYCC).

    2) Starting in 2019, if junior player from any province couldn't take part in any local CYCC qualification tournament, he or she becomes eligible by remitting a fee that is split between the CFC and the provincial chess federation.

    3) The exact amount of the fee and the split details are to be reviewed periodically. For 2019-2022, the fee is set at $40, with 75% going to the CFC and 25% to the provincial federation.

    4) The above stipulations are optional; it is up to the local organizers to choose if they shall apply.
