Requirements for Arizona Title Chess Events

Our primary concern is assuring the quality of Arizona Title Events. ACFI accepts proposals and expressions of interest for the running of chess events that award state titles for Arizona Every State Championship shall be 1) open to all players in the category, or 2) open to all players who advance from a designated qualifying tournament. Designated qualifying tournaments shall be open to all players in the category. Each State Championship event shall contribute $1.50 per player to ACFI unless the ACFI board has approved other arrangements. An organizer who presents an expression of interest or a proposal for the running of a state title event implies an agreement to follow ACFI Scholastic requirements and guidelines for the event.
