Board Meeting Minutes - July 23, 2018

Prelude: We had difficulty with the discord software and switched to a phone conference to communicate. Earle kept watch on the discord and added individuals as they came online. Because of this, I am uncertain who attended the meeting in addition to the Board members.

Meeting called to order about 8:35 PM (delay due to the above mentioned communications problem).

Earle asked me to read the previous meeting's minutes.  You may review them at  http://www.coloradochess.com/post/full/30 .  The minutes were approved.

Online Board Meeting

Update: Minutes will be posted upon electronic approval by the board.

Additionally, since I disagree with the change of direction the new board has taken, after a fitful night, I resigned from the board. It has been my pleasure to serve the chessplayers of Colorado. (Paul Covington)

I did say I would post Earle's motion which will be presented for members' approval at the Membership meeting September 2nd: 

Earle's motion.

Changes to the CSCA Board

As many people may know, there have been some changes to the CSCA board over the last couple of months. Apologies for the delay in reporting this information, but I am one of the ones affected in this scenario.

James MacNeil has decided to step down as Member at Large to focus on the Denver Chess Club.
Dean Clow has stepped down as President. Earl Wikle will assume the role of President until September.

Dean stepped down for personal reasons that he doesn't want to get into at this point of time, and would like to thank everyone for their support.
