Donald Godfrey's Candidate Statement for Membership Officer: Dear Chess Enthusiast. My name is Donald Godfrey and I am a candidate for the position of Membership Officer. I moved to Arizona in calendar year 2006 and am employed as a Program Manager for Honeywell Aerospace. I began playing chess as a young student in Indianapolis . I currently have two boys that play the game daily and love competing against other players. As the Membership Officer I would like to join with the Board and work to encourage families to play chess together. It would be fun to have at State Competitions time where children could compete against parents. This activity would encourage adults to not only join the USCF but be more involved and encouraging to the chess development of their children.
