A message from Brian Valentine who represents us at ECF meetings ( I have tried to add the appropriate links):-
I will be attending this meeting on 28th April. I would welcome indications from your club or members,on how I should vote on the various proposals.
Not all papers are available yet, especially the accounts, budgets or fees. However there are proposals on the county championships, combining bronze and silver membership and spending £6k on women’s chess that might give rise to opinions.
I’ll write again if something substantial appears.
You should note that the ECF has published recommendations on data protection on the website that clubs and the association should follow.
Please comment direct to Brian as per recent mail but it might be interesting to discuss things below – I will kick off with my ecf-philic views.
