Six candidates vie for four seats. The top two finishers earn 3 year seats and the next two are elected for 2 years. Each voting member may vote for as many as four candidates.
Here are my three endorsements.
- Ruth Haring hails from Northern California and attends local tournaments. As current USCF President, she applies experience in business to help the chess community.
- Mike Atkins organizes and directs major tournaments on the east coast. In his first term on the Board, he served the federation with an open mind and a steady hand.
- Randy Bauer is a chess master and an accountant in Iowa government. A former Board member, he brings to the table financial guidance that the USCF often lacks.
