I see Jack Rudd was appointed a Non-Executive Director of the English Chess Federation at a special meeting on Monday, to fill one of the 2 vacancies left after their AGM the previous Saturday. It is hoped he can bring to the Board his experience as an IM and organiser. This comes hot on the tail of his playing success in coming 1st= at the Uxbridge Masters Tournament a few days earlier. so he will undoubtedly be feeling on the crest of a wave of activity at the moment.
Having spent several years on the Management Board myself, I know what their meetings can be like, and wish him well in this new venture for him.
