Dear Colleagues in Chess,

As you may well be aware, at the instance of the FIDE President two years ago, a study on the re-structure of Commissions was conducted. Reasons were already explained in the Agenda and the Minutes of the FIDE Executive Board 2007 and the FIDE Congress 2008 both of which are published on the FIDE website. The Presidential Board Meeting in Istanbul held on 6th March 2009 confirmed all the changes, implementations and appointments of new Chairpersons and members of the re-structured Commissions.

On behalf of the FIDE President and FIDE, we thank ALL of you for the enormous amount of work you have contributed over the past several years. We hope that for those who have not been re-appointed, you may continue to contribute by correspondence and/or attend meetings of the Commissions. We will constantly monitor the work of those appointed as well as take into consideration of those who contribute even though they are not members.

Once again, Thank You, and wishing you all the best in your future chess endeavours.

Ignatius Leong
FIDE General Secretary
