I am announcing today that I am a candidate for the Executive Board in the 2010 election. As the long time Wisconsin Chess Association President, USCF Delegate and Scholastic Council Co-Chair, I believe I have the experience to serve the EB well. Leadership and integrity are what is needed to lead the USCF out of its current crises. That alone will lead to great opportunities including sponsorships.
Shortly I will forward my nomination papers to the office. I look forward to the race. Good luck to all that choose to run but I hope I can earn your support!
Bill Goichberg replied to the post:
Mike is a well qualified candidate, and I intend to support his candidacy, as well as that of Gary Walters, for the two available seats on the Executive Board.
I have heard nothing but good about Mike Nietman, and I'm pleased to have Bill's support.
