Dear BCF Members,
I am honored to have been elected to serve as President of the Boylston Chess Foundation. Over the next year, I will strive to promote our non-profit organization and its mission.
Before I was elected, I told the members at our annual meeting that we are at a crossroads. In one form or another, our club dates back to the 1850’s. However, despite this amazing history we are continually at risk. Eventually, we will need a permanent home. While that is not a realistic short-term goal, it is something we must work towards. I will certainly do my best to keep us moving forward.
Because of time restraints related to my professional life, our Board of Directors will take an even more active role over the next year. We are very fortunate to have a Board that is both talented and passionate. We are already discussing ways to continue our important scholastic programs, which are essential, while also demonstrating fiscal discipline.
Every single member is important to us, and we know that the BCF only exists because of your continuing support. Whether you are a beginner or a strong master, we want to hear from you. Tell us about your club experience, and what we can do better. If you have questions or comments, you can contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
By working together, we can continue our proud tradition as the foremost chess club in Greater Boston.
