KJCA AGM on October 13th

KJCA is pleased to invite and welcome all to its Annual General Meeting which will be held on the 13th of October 2013, during training day 1 at Amherst School. We are a volunteer organisation and we need your help to function.

The KJCA provides first class regular competitions and training days across Kent which are the envy of all other counties throughout the UK. It also has a long and proud history of success at its county team events, winning many national titles across all junior age groups. Many Kent players go on to achieve great individual success at National events such as the British Chess Championships held every summer and also through representing England at International  tournaments such as the Worlds and the Europeans (see our Roll of Honour page:

The KJCA is run through the dedication of a few parents just like you. We not only need to hear your voice in order to update and improve our services, but we also need more volunteers to help run the organisation and to help continue the KJCA success for many more years to come. If you are able to give some of your time, even if it is just for a few hours at the various KJCA events, please let us know. You do not necessarily need to know anything about chess.

You can help and we need your help! Come along to the AGM to find out more. All are welcome.
