US Chess Discussion

Welcome! This blog has no connection with the USCF. It's a blog where I provide chess fans with general information about US Chess as well as the USCF. It's also a site where everyone can productively discuss or ask questions about various USCF issues! Your contributions and comments are welcome! PLEASE KEEP IT CIVIL & RESPECT OTHERS! Enjoy!

USCF Motions by SP and PT

Motion: USCF Financials

Prior to this occurring, the USCF must be given guarantees that the insurance agency would provide the coverage and make USCF a beneficiary.

Additionally prior to occurring factor in costs of the insurance being passed through by Mike Nolan, plus his consulting fees and determine if less than hiring him plus the direct cost of insurance to the USCF.
