TCA Elections 2015

The Texas Chess Association (TCA) elections are upon us.   Please read below for submission requirements and deadlines.

The Texas Knights (TK) Editor MUST have any candidate nominations (and candidate contact information [specifically a phone # and best time to call] for nomination acceptance verification) no later than July 12th.  Candidate nominations will not be accepted past July 12th.

July 15th is the deadline to have any initial candidate introductions to the TK Editor so they can be published in the upcoming issue of TK, to be printed early within the first week of August.  Soon after July 15th, you will receive a sample of your formatted introductions for review and modification (so you will know exactly what your introduction will look like in the upcoming issue of TK and you will have the opportunity to revise for content and space restrictions).   Again, candidates do get 1/2 page in TK for no cost.   Any additional space can be purchased at the current advertisement rates. It is recommended that candidates include a photograph for inclusion in any introductions.

All current candidates have been renominated, if you do not accept your nomination, The TK Editor needs to know no later than July 15th.

You are welcome to send nominations and/or introductions to the TK Editor by US Mail at P.O. Box 151804, Fort Worth, TX  76108 or email to texasknightsed@gmail.com.  

Again, please note:  All nominations must be delivered by July 12th (and don't forget to provide contact information [phone # and best time to call] so that nomination acceptance can be verified).   All initial candidate introductions must be delivered by July 15th.   After midnight CDT on July 12th, it will be assumed all nominations have been received.   After midnight CDT on July 15th, it will be assumed all candidates that will be providing introductions have submitted a first draft (you will be notified when final drafts are required after July 15th).  If an initial introduction is NOT received from a candidate by July 15th, it is assumed that the candidate will NOT be providing an introduction for publication in TK.
