This is my platform and application
for the position of 2013-2014 CITL Vice President: When I was little, I never had the
privilege of learning chess because of time and financial constraints.
Thanks to CITL, kids from all over Canada can enjoy this. As we continue
moving forward, I am asking for your vote for 2013-2014 CITL Vice President.
This year, I have served as Media Coordinator on the executive team.
Since the day that I joined CITL, I’ve learnt so much and I’ve had some great
experiences. Despite my own lack of knowledge about chess, I’ve had a
grand time! This year, I was in charge of managing all media – social
media and traditional media – related to all CITL events such as tournaments,
branch openings, and the annual festival. I’ve sent dozens of press
releases, created posters, and designed the official CITL welcome package for
sponsors, members, and volunteers that will be released soon. So what about next year? If I am elected as
Vice President, I will be coordinating all media including press releases and
Facebook posts – something I have already been doing for the past year.
In addition, I will also coordinate internal affairs by communicating
with the rest of the executive members and collectively make decisions in the
best interest of the organization. I will help to not only create more
branches, but also to establish sustainable operations to build a stronger
CITL. Most importantly, I want to make CITL
renowned. CITL has really expanded to new horizons this year with many
branch openings and successful events. We have grown our organization to
bring the opportunity of playing chess to youth all over Canada. CITL is
truly unique in that we provide chess education, competition, and prizes all
without charging a penny. Now, it’s time to get CITL into the public
eye. Through creating partnerships with media and promoting CITL in
mainstream media outlets, I want to make more people than ever aware of what
CITL is and what we stand for. Let’s get people talking. I will do everything I can to bring the
opportunities I never had to more youth. I believe that my past
experiences, my skills, and my passion for CITL will put me as a suitable
candidate for your Vice President. Give me your trust, and I will return
it with the best of my ability.
