IS THERE A NEED FOR ELECTION OF 2012 NCFP OFFICERS?

Postby darusalam2011 on Sun Oct 16, 2011 11:17 am

Flashback! Every time I see chess enthusiasts playing, I remember the chaos between the right wing and the left wing believers of NCFP in the opening year of 2008. I do remember that When I attended the election in Tagaytay City , Election will be done in 2012 for the NEW SET OF OFFICERS. Will this be Necessary? WHY? Also May ask the opinion of the PUBLIC. Is it really necessary that a GRANDMASTER will hold the position of NCFP Executive Director? Being a GM is the highest status of a player in the field of chess. Why not be a Player and show to the universe that he is really one of the best players. Anyway, being a NCFP executive Director as GM would be an asset because he can use his status to convince sponsors? Again, will there be a need for 2012 NCFP election for the new set of officer. If requested I can upload a very significant letter and NCFP Constitution & BY Laws as amended in 2008. I think NO ELECTION, it is better to appoint coordinators and use them as front liner in organizing tournaments. Just organizers being used by the Federation No More, No Less!

it is not the question of whether a GM or not holds the position, it's a matter of know how. There are some non GM's who can do well in managing the post and convince more sponsors specially if he is keen on the needs of the job and the chess community as a whole. He must prioritize on chess development without favor. Lastly, he must avoid conflicts of interests. Election on my opinion is a MUST, since it is an exercise to uphold the members welfare. It is prerogative and should be present in any lawful organizations. It is better if you can upload that significant letter you mentioned in your post, that will be most welcomed to enlighten us.

everything will be beneficial if the goals you mentioned are met. A concurrence among the affiliated clubs and the hierarchy of NCFP must be in order. No one calls the shots all by himself, but it must be in unison with the other stakeholders, largely composed of the chess community. I agree also on effecting coordinators in every region down to the district levels in the mold of DepEd systems so as to reach the farthest and remote districts in the countryside.

Re: IS THERE A NEED FOR ELECTION OF 2012 NCFP OFFICERS?

Master Rudy, Thank you for the moment you are rendering on this site. It is all our vision to let the chess enthusiasts develop their skills and use this skill in bringing honor and prestige to our country. Let the dreams of the youth be obtained by helping them through their parents guidance, trainors, coaches and teachers. Why is it that NCFP is not doing an action or project focusing on the kiddies development alone. Parents are suffering too much. Pain is being felt. Their chidren is 99.9% talented but how could they let their kids be a professional highly rated chess player if they could not afford to join the national events staged in far away places. NCFP relies on donations & sponsors. Is the Federation no budget at all to stage a tournament without a sponsor. Without much ado let us give thanks to all chess sponsors who attended to the needs of the chess players. praise not the people who took advanctage of the Federation's visions and missions getting sponsors sympathy collect money and then no more. Chess Players are longing for more tournaments... Why not the NCFP gather all the skilled chess organizers, meet them in one setting , make a working plan and established chess tournaments in the countryside. We miss the big events in San Fabian Pangasinan, Free food, lodging and swimming. Can we not have the same tournament organized by NCFP today? Where are the excellent organizers? Please wake up and help the ailing philippine chess world.

Let me mention also on this site that MS. BRIGIDA T. YARCIA of Region II is willing to sponsor a chess tournament in her hometown. I was not able to get her phone number because we had no ample time to talk longer because the seminar we attended at Shangrila(Oritgas) was so hectic. Nevertheless, she mentioned her willingness to sponsor a chess tournament. at this juncture, may I appeal to the chess organizers who personally know madam aida as they popularly call her, to set meeting with her and discuss the tournament. I was able to give the cp numbers of NAPCA arbiters in NCR. Madam Aida expressed her willingness to support the Big Events of the National Federation of the the Philippines as well as the big events of NAPCA to be held in her hometown.

What about NAPCA? What are the forthcoming events? Is it possible for a CAAP Member to JOIN the NAPCA? What are the requirements? I guess my friends are joining the NAPCA? Arbiters must be competent in doing their duties. Not just standing there doing some "pogi Points" They must be tough. No Fear in giving the right judgement. I am a chess player , can I join the NAPCA? When will be the next NAPCA Seminar?
