The chess club is a voluntary, non-profit association. We’re not incorporated and we don’t formalized membership or a board of directors.
The most formal thing we’ve ever done is open a bank account.
Where we direct our time is opening/closing our club week in and week out and occasionally running special events like tournaments.
The people who do this consistently are an organizing committee. We’ve now taken the step of calling ourselves that and have made it clear that participation in making this happen is open to new people who demonstrate responsibility and commitment. We’d like more help and would like to rely on a broader base of people to take care of this over time.
We invite folks interested in helping to come out to our September 10 club day, where as an organizing committee we will renew our opening/closing commitments for the next quarter and consider interest from new organizers.
The opening/closing commitments that have been made up until that date are:
- August 6, 2016 — Jamie
- August 13, 2016 — Mark
- August 20, 2016 — Jamie
- August 27, 2016 — Mark
- September 3, 2016 — Jamie
- September 10, 2016 — Mark
