The notice for new titles from the latest FIDE presidential board meetings is now posted with good news for the USCF.
Robert Hungaski has been approved as a GM. See Hungaski's CLO piece on earning his final norm at the Continental Championships. Kayden Troff and Samuel Sevian have been approved conditionally as IM's pending 2400 FIDE ratings. According to preliminary calculations, Kayden should go over 2400 after the North American Open and the Golden State Open, so the title should appear soon on his FIDE card.
