04/2/2022MACA Bylaws amendment

MACA Bylaws amendment
 
Like many organizations, the Massachusetts Chess Association was prompted by the pandemic to begin having meetings over Zoom. In case this should become necessary or desirable in the future, we felt it was a good idea to provide for this method of meeting in the MACA Bylaws, specifying what minimum requirements and procedures must be adhered to by the Executive Board when scheduling virtual meetings.
 
The Bylaws amendment passed on January 12 implements this idea. (Please see http://www.masschess.org/Board/Minutes/minutes_content.aspx?minutes_uid=105 , item 6)  The main change is the new section 2.9 which sets out requirements for meetings via internet meeting services, following recommendations in Robert's Rules of Order Newly Revised (12th edition) and other sources.  The other parts of the amendment simply adjust older Bylaw sections to account for the new method of meeting.
 
Under our procedure for amending the Bylaws, the membership is given an opportunity to approve or repeal the amendment by a majority vote in the annual election. On the ballot question
 
Do you approve of the amendment to the MACA Bylaws, "Amendment to regulate electronic meetings" adopted by the Executive Board on January 12, 2022?

a Yes vote is a vote to approve, and a No vote is a vote to repeal.
 
The Executive Board recommends a Yes vote, to approve the amendment.

Candidate Statements:
 
The following candidates have submitted statements in support of their candidacy:
 

Elsie Smits, candidate for Director

 

I am a parent, teacher, and chess coach to the Funky Owls Chess Club. In support of my daughter’s love of chess, in 2017, I started a chess club dedicated to children due to the lack of children’s chess clubs in my area. I have created a fun, and supportive chess environment teaching good sportsmanship and personal growth. Today, I support Scholastic chess by inspiring children from many towns to play chess, including tournament chess. I would love to share my vision and creativity with MACA in the hopes of inspiring more Scholastic chess clubs. Thank you for your support!

 

 

Dmitri Barash, candidate for Director

 

I’m a Chess Player (2300), Parent of two actively playing Kids, Tutor (teaching kids for 30+ years), and Tournament Director.

 

I update top by rating for Spiegel Cup and keep some statistics on the attendance of MACA tournaments. You can see more details on my page

 

  https://sites.google.com/site/scholasticchessinma/

 

I’d like to return to MACA board as I think MACA doesn’t run enough tournaments especially scholastic ones in this post-covid times. My goal is also to improve the registration for the tournaments.

 

 

Igor Klempf, candidate for Director

 

I am an avid chess player and a parent to three kids who play chess. Me and my kids have been actively participating in MACA chess tournaments for the last 4 years and love the game of chess wholeheartedly. 

 

I am interested in becoming more involved in the life of chess in MA. Therefore, I am interested in becoming MACA board director in order to promote scholastic tournaments in the state, increase interest and awareness of the game, help establish more kids chess clubs, and increase tournament registration rates, especially among the scholastic population.

 

 

Alonzo Ross, candidate for Director

 

I am a lifelong chess player and a USCF Tournament Director. I am very active in the Greater Worcester Chess Club. In addition, I have served on the NECA Board. Now that the Lockdown is past, we need to concentrate on two tasks: encourage kids to play chess and restore the MACA Tournaments.


 

Jeffrey Caruso, candidate for Clerk

 

I have been honored to be part of this MACA Board. After a challenging year in 2020-2021, we've worked hard to resume a strong schedule of in-person events: the 2021 Massachusetts Open in October, the Pillsbury Memorial, the Senior Open and others.  The Massachusetts G/60 Championship is returning, and this year's Massachusetts Open is planned for its traditional Memorial Day weekend slot.  We also have a full scholastic schedule of individual and team events which will culminate in a Spiegel Cup final, Hurvitz Cup, and Girls' Championship this spring.

 

As Clerk I have been diligent in keeping members up to date with my policy of "instant Board minutes," and I will continue to bring the core values of transparency, service, and fairness to my positions of Clerk and Elections Chair.

 

I support our current board members who are running again, and am encouraged to see some active chess organizers among our new candidates.

 

Please give me your vote so I can continue to work for you!

 

 

Robert E. King, candidate for President and for Director

 

Online chess playing and member is still increasing since my last report in my candidate statement.  As of November 2021, Chess.com membership has more than doubled at a 60% increase since the pandemic.  As previously reported, on Chess.comthere has been a 66% increase in activity since the pandemic, prior to the Netflix miniseries The Queen's Gambit.  The miniseries made the top ten in 92 countries and ranked #1 in 63 countries.  Due to the pandemic and the miniseries, there has been a significant increase USCF memberships, USCF sales, and chess products.  The new USCF members will be looking for chess tournaments to play in.  MACA needs to be ready for this increase of players in MACA tournaments because the time is coming.  MACA and the new chess players deserve the best leadership for a successful future, and my past history of MACA service as MACA President and Director make me uniquely qualified to lead us for the success of chess!  My sister Robin King-Franklin, a registered nurse working at the hospital in Worcester, is running for MACA Director.  Together we all can win!

 

 

Paul Arond, candidate for Director

 

Thank you to all MACA members who have supported my candidacy as Director for the past seven years (with one year off for good behavior). It has been an honor to serve with dedicated stewards of chess in the Bay State to promote and expand participation in this great game of ours. If given the opportunity, I will continue to advocate for growing outreach, diversity, and fairness across the board.

 

 

Latanya Sweeney, candidate for Director

 

I will continue my commitment to expand participation by helping to establish chess leagues at schools, new chess learning opportunities, and helping to ignite additional club activities. Thank you for your support.
