The Constitution Working Party has now completed the work on the revised constitution and have submitted the completed document to Chess Scotland in order that it be presented at the SGM to be held on Saturday June 18th 2016.

Chess Scotland has introduced a formal Proxy Voting Form to be used for the registration of ALL proxy votes – this will also be available for download and submission to the Executive Director. All Proxy votes must be registered by 23.59pm on Saturday June 11th 2016.

All affiliated clubs, leagues and other organisations are also required to submit a completed Proxy Vote Form. Chess Scotland is currently in the process of allocating PNUMs to all affiliates so that they can be verified against the membership database.
