EB CONFERENCE CALL
Following are the minutes of a USCF Executive Board conference call held last night. Former President John McCrary has resigned from the Board, leaving it with six members. An election to fill the vacancy is not required under the Bylaws, and it is believed that due to the cost involved, the Board will probably not schedule one and will remain short a member for the next two years.
In other news, USCF rating fees will increase to 20 cents per game on disk and 40 cents per game on paper, probably effective January 1, 2004. Current rating fees are 15 cents per game on disk (10 cents for scholastic or quick events) and 30 cents per game on paper (20 cents for scholastic or quick events). All types of tournaments will pay the same rating fee when the new fees go into effect.
