Old Title Norms - Andy Howie - 11-03-2013

Dear friends!

Due to move of offices and upgrading of computers and technical
software and hardware in the past 20 years, it has been an onerous
task to verify norms achieved from old tournaments based on the then
prevailing title regulations when the tournaments took place. Instead
of tracking old regulations and old tournament results whenever an
application is received, the QC recommended that norms achieved prior
to 1st July 2005 be registered before 1st July 2013. Failing which,
the norm will be considered to have expired. In addition with readily
available information from the recent years, the QC hopes to move
towards automation of title awards as soon as possible.

The PB approved the recommendation of the QC.

Anyone affected, please can you let me know
