Call for Nominations

Positions: Officers

Elections for Michigan Chess Association Offices of President, Vice President, Secretary, and Treasurer will be held at the Annual General Membership Meeting at the upcoming 2017 Michigan Open. Whether you are an active or inactive Michigan chess player or the parent of a Michigan chess player, if you are a Michigan Chess Association member, your candidacy is welcome. Please contact the Election Committee Chair, Loren Schwiebert, at for more information or if you want to be a candidate for any of these positions.

Each candidate is encouraged to write a brief statement for the website. If you are interested, please let me know as soon as possible. Candidates may also be nominated from the floor at the Annual Meeting. If you have not yet been involved in the organization and are interested in helping promote chess in Michigan, these are good positions to help support the growth of the Michigan Chess Association.
