The ΕCU Board welcomed the expression of interest by a large number of applicants and appointed the members for the ECU Commissions and the European representatives for the FIDE Commissions.
The criteria that were used for the selections were: (a) The applications received through the open call of interest and the qualifications of the applicants (b) The proposals by the ECU Commissions’ Chairmen (c) The wide representation (d) The implementation of the ECU Board policies in key areas.
ECU notes that a number of remarkable applicants had already applied and to FIDE and have been selected by FIDE for certain tasks, so they couldn’t be selected and by ECU as the rule agreed with FIDE is that each individual could participate only to one FIDE Commission.

We wish a good luck to all members and hoping on the best achievements.
