2020 US Chess Executive Board Candidate –
What differentiates me from other candidates? How will US Chess benefit?
I am the only woman running for an all-male Executive Board (EB). I have been playing chess since I was six years old and visited 44 countries, traveling extensively for chess tournaments and business. I have vast professional level expertise in different areas of chess—playing, teaching, organizing, and directing—as well as finance and business, combined with not-for-profit experience. I am the only candidate who has previously served a full term on the US Chess EB (2015–2018).
