  • 2020 eoca agm

    The OCA AGM is scheduled to begin this Sunday, May 24th.
    Our EOCA is expected to have conducted our AGM by then.
    However, our EOCA AGM has not yet been conducted, per:

    1) Due to personal situations within families of key EOCA people, we're still unable to transition management of EOCA membership mailing lists to the new Secretary. Without such transition, we're uncomfortable "springing" an online AGM.

    2) Due to the obvious COVID-19 situation, we cannot conduct a traditional in-person EOCA AGM, which many EOCA folk still seem to favour overwhelmingly. But this also dovetails into the first point above. We did not get done what we had to.

    3) The Government of Ontario has announced a grace period for AGMs like ours. The announcement currently stipulates that organizations like ours, after appropriate re-opening(s) of social activities, will have 90 days to "catch up" on their AGM.

    Therefore, the current EOCA Executive has unanimously agreed:

    a) all current EOCA positions are being temporarily extended:
    President: Aris Marghetis
    Vice-President: David Gordon
    Treasurer: Halldor Palsson (already Life Governor)
    Secretary: Jeremy Sztuka
    EOCA/OCA Regional VP: Aris Marghetis
    Governors (in order, usually 3): Aris Marghetis, David Gordon, Jeremy Sztuka

    b) traditional 2020 EOCA AGM within 90 days of Ontario provincial "re-opening"

    Thank you, best regards, Aris Marghetis, EOCA President.

              The fundamental problem is finding people who are competent and also willing to volunteer a significant amount of time and be willing to deal with a lot of abuse (at times).
              See threads here on ChessTalk with the current (or any past) CFC president for lots of examples... Ideas are cheap and plentiful - actual work may not be.

                        Nope.

                        The fundamental problem is not knowing where you are or even much worse ..who you are.
                        In other words Kerry, lack of understanding ... a.k.a ignorance.

                        No offense intended. I've been there and done that, ha!

                        So having leveled the playing field ... allow me to get you all on the same page. Here's an image I created showing the K factor as I call it ... postal code K** *** ... I understand that that still defines the EOCA boundaries ... does it not???

                            My recollection of Neil is that he never really was a CFC member. Maybe a year or two at some point (when he was planning to become CFC President). He might also have played in an active event over 15 years ago organized by his ghost chess club.

                            I might be forgetting a thing or two but I believe Neil first appeared when Troy Vail was CFC ED. At some point, Troy banned him from the CFC Office. Then David Miriguay became ED and him too banned Neil from the CFC Office. After I became CFC ED, I had to ban Neil from the CFC Office as well, having to call the cops for him to leave. Back then, even though he wasn't even a CFC member, he was under the impression he had the right to hang around the CFC Office all day long if he wished so, every day. Back then the CFC was selling equipment and we were allowing walk-ins.

                              Iceman ... organized chess in Canada has very little to do with your beloved & outdated CFC. And BTW, thanks so much for keeping my National Capital Open going ... <3!

                              OK, back on track ...

                              One natural fit for the EOCA ... reach out to our Military bases. But before you kiddies go and do that ...have a game plan on how to coordinate these amazing folks.

                              Here's a fresh map...

                              https://societyofchessaficionados.co...-FactorMBs.jpg

                              ...look how much more territory and natural resources the EOCA has developed !!!

                              Form some sort of inter-military base chess championship ... if we like that formation SoCA will be honored to contribute $500.00, plus the trophy.

                              It's time for growth Iceman.

                              :))))
