The FIDE Treasurer, Nigel Freeman, and FIDE Executive Director, David Jarrett, were hosted by GM Darcy Lima during the Continental Board Meeting of the Americas held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil from March 18-22. They briefed the Board on recent happenings in FIDE including the 2010 Olympiad, ongoing negotiations with Chess Lane for the chess news project and aid for Haiti. The Continental President, Jorge Vega, informed FIDE that the Americas have a full programme of events for 2010. The 2009 programme was successfully completed with increased numbers of participants.

The FIDE representatives inspected the facilities that are proposed for the 2011 World Youth Championships in Rio de Janeiro. Negotiations with a major hotel chain in Rio de Janeiro are proceeding. The probable venue will be adjacent to the world famous Copacabana beach although other hotels at Barra de Tijuca beach are also being considered. The hotel that is most likely to be chosen is undergoing a major refit and will be ready by the end of 2010.
