I add a few explanation regarding the MCF office bearers and the position of Persatuan Catur Daerah Kuantan. The explanation is in red.

Last Saturday I had a discussion with two Malaysian Chess Federation (MCF) top officials-Hj.Ibrahim Bakar (Vice President) and Gregory Lau (Secretary) about MCF recent development. I think this is a good initiative because I can share some of it with interested party and local chess lovers.

MCF has held their Annual General Meetings (AGM) on 23rd- December 2009 at the Wisma Olympic Council of Malaysia (OCM), Kuala Lumpur . The details is as below:-

The Malaysian Chess Federation which is registered under the Commissioner of Sports (COS) is in the process to intergrate all states chess association to be registered with the Commissioner of Sports (COS) so they can be officially affiliated with MCF. This is important step to ensure that MCF and the states chess association have a proper and clear working structure.

States Chess Associations registered with Commisioner of Sports under the Sports Development Act 1997. These Association is an affiliate of Malaysian Chess Federation.
