Mr. Herbert , the CCA Treasurer, gave a comprehensive report of the Treasury, with a careful balance of the revenues and expenditures, as well as the budget for the current year based on statistics from previous years. The report was handed to all people present at the meeting and will be sent to the national federations for their information.
Mr. Herbert also presented the budget for CACDEC and gave a progress report about what was done in 2007. In view of this progress, FIDE increased the budget substantially for the CACDEC Federations.
The Treasurer said that the FIDE acknowledged the CCA for submitting reports and receipts faster than any other Continent.
Due to the lack of knowledge that has affected organizers and federations in the way they submit reports of tournaments and events, Mr. Herbert announced a CACDEC seminar.
This seminar will focus on the program Swiss Manager and the methodology for reporting FIDE events for validation and ratings. It will take place in San Salvador in conjunction with the Pan American Women's Championship.
Speaking in his capacity as chairman of CACDEC, Mr. Herbert announced that the Committee would support players from CACDEC federations, with a bonus of US$500.
This bonus will be awarded to the top CACDEC player in each category at the Pan American Youth Festival.
These players need to be placed among the top 20 in each category, and the assistance is aiming to help them participate in the World Youth Championships. This bonus is personal and non-transferable and applies only to players who participate in the World Youth Championships.
Mr. Herbert explained that this project has been in discussion since 2006 and has finally been realized. The Treasurer's report was unanimously approved and received a round of applause.
The President thanked Mr. Erick Hernandez, President of the Salvadoran Chess Federation and Zone 2.3, for hosting the meeting and for his continued support of the CCA. He concluded the meeting with an expression of gratitude for the support received by Engineer Isuzi, Chairman of Indes, who has been instrumental to the chess activities in Zone 2.3 and CCA.
The meeting ended at 12:00 noon.
