    Default 5.D CFC Handbook

    CFC Secretary Lyle Craver has proposed a project to start moving this along. I have agreed to serve on this committee. I will let Lyle explain what he is proposing.

    The CFC Handbook is our collection of (1) our constitution, (2) collected motions since the last Handbook revision and (3) documents NOT involving the governance of the CFC but still highly useful. Examples would be how to run a chess tournament, regulations on the rating system, regulations for the Canadian championship and so forth.

    It is absolutely NOT intended to change the rules and regulations of the CFC.

    While it is possible some of our recommendations could lead to motions that DO change our rules and regs, this is seen primarily as modernizing a whole series of 'housekeeping changes' which we should have been doing all along. We intend to make it more obvious to all which are the main governing documents, regulations for specific tasks (ratings, national events) and which are of either topical ("So you want to run a chess tournament") or historical interest.

    For instance there are numerous references in the CFC Handbook to "Voting Members", "Class A Voting Members", "Governors", "CFC Governors" all of which refer to the same position in the CFC.

    Similarly there are a few items that most of us understand what they mean but might bring the "new" (2014 if memory serves) Not For Profit legislation into possible conflict.

    Before completing the revision of the Handbook (which previously has been done on average about once a decade) we intend to bring the document forward for VM ratification in sections probably in the first quarter of 2019.

    I am hoping to assemble a committee and to begin work on this task as soon as possible after the AGM.

    I believe that we should also rescind all previous versions of the Handbook and related motions in case we forget to include some old motions.

    I expect that many motions, such as the CFC Tournament Rules which are no longer found on our site and the CFC Ethic Committee motion will not make it to the new Handbook.

    Technically we have already rescinded the previous handbook right there in the articles of continuation which allowed us to continue to operate as a non-profit corporation in Canada.
