USCF seeks FIDE Zonal President
By Bill Hall   
April 28, 2009
USCF is now accepting applications for the volunteer post of FIDE Zonal President for the U.S. Zone.  Our previous Zonal President, John Donaldson, did a fantastic job but has moved on to allow himself more time for playing.  I would like, on behalf of the USCF and personally, to thank John for all of his efforts and his dedication.

The Zonal President is expected to attend FIDE meetings (at least those held at Olympiads), with no expenses provided, and support the US position regarding FIDE issues and candidates.  He or she should also be available to help our top players, arbiters and the USCF office submit proper title norm applications, to answer questions from top players regarding FIDE and Masters issues and keep them informed, and to help the office transmit information and invitations to our top players.

Preferably, the Zonal President should be a FIDE rated Master, or an organizer or director with experience in holding FIDE norm events.  Applicants should contact Executive Director Bill Hall at bhall@uschess.org no later than May 12. The Executive Board expects to make the appointment at its meeting in Saint Louis May 16-17.
