North Canterbury Chess is a chess club which operates out of Rangiora, New Zealand. We are run by an elected executive comprising President, Vice-President and Secretary/Treasurer with up to two additional untitled councilors.
Our club is a non-profit organization. This status is detailed in our constitution and is recognised by New Zealand's sole taxation agency - the Inland Revenue Department.
We formed 12 September 2001, and since 2002 have been affiliated with the New Zealand Chess Federation (NZCF) the governing body for chess in New Zealand.
From our constitution…
2.1 To encourage & foster the game of chess, with emphasis in the North Canterbury area.
2.2 To arrange and run matches, tournaments & competitions and other chess events.
We also organize school lectures, tuition, as well as our social & competitive chess events.
We are governed by New Zealand law, our constitution, NZCF regulations and FIDE rules. So long as we don't act outside these constraints we are free to organize chess (and other) events as we see fit.
We operate a democratic policy toward decision making.
