We’re interacting with many other FIDE commissions, including Chess in the Schools, Events, Women’s, Disabled, and Trainers Commissions.
We welcome collaborations with other International Organizations that share similar goals. The following seminars are connected to the Chilean government in conjunction with the Ministry of Social Development. In Chile, three FIDE Trainers Seminars were held in: Santiago, Concepcion and Iquique. GM and Senior Trainer Reinaldo Vera was the Lecturer and the Assistant Lecturer was WIM and FIDE Trainer Beatriz Marinello.
In order to develop chess we need to reach out to the local community and provide them with skills and the motivation needed to support the creation of new programs and existing programs. Therefore, it makes sense to include Seminars that offer training for Trainers and Organizers.
The Ugandan Chess Federation in conjunction with FIDE, hosted two important events, an International Organizers Seminar and FIDE Trainer’s Seminar. The events took place from August 28th to 31st 2015 Kampala, Uganda.
The seminars attracted over 30 participants from Sierra Leone, Uganda, Kenya, Rwanda and Burundi. This is the first time that these two types of seminars are held in East Africa and presented an opportunity for participants to acquire skills related to organizing high level events as well as nurturing and developing chess talent.
The seminars started with a brief opening ceremony at which several of the leading local press were represented.
