Title of International Organiser (IO) Print
Tuesday, 14 June 2011 07:45


The Presidential Board in Al Ain accepted the recommendations of the Events Commission concerning the title of International Organiser. With effect from 1 January 2012, the title of IO shall not be awarded directly upon application. Instead, candidates will be required to attend seminars and to pass the examination. Successful candidates will be awarded the title upon payment of title fee and licence fee (3-years) similar to the systems already in place for trainers.

FIDE urges all national federations to apply for the title for their organisers with the application fee or confirmation that they accept to pay if the title is granted. The deadline shall be 20th July 2011 after which late penalty shall be imposed.

After the Krakow Congress, no direct application shall be accepted.

Ignatius Leong
Chairman, Events Commission
