Hello All,

Just returned to Canada this morning. The Presidential Board in Budapest discussed and approved in principle the draft of the new FIDE Charter.

The final version is to be adopted at the Extraordinary General Assembly, to be convened "in the second half of December".

There were 65 (!) pages of comments and suggestion on the draft that we reviewed and discussed. It is extremely important that all federations continue to collaborate proactively with FIDE in shaping what will become a constitution for its second century. Maître Rivello welcomes well-reasoned proposals and comments, and I can assure you that the Task Force studies each and every one of them.

Vlad has already posted both documents but they are buried now in the 2019 Outgoing Meeting section. Thus, I am creating this thread so that everyone can have an easy point of reference both for the introduction letter and the July 28 version. Please send your feedback to FIDE.
