Sheryl Mc Broom
Candidate for TCA Secretary

My Friends, I am running for TCA Secretary and ask for your support and vote.

My professional experience, volunteer background and education make me well qualified to be TCA Secretary. One of the TCA Secretary’s most important responsibilities is attending TCA business meetings and processing the minutes expeditiously so the Bylaws Committee can quickly update the Bylaws. TCA Bylaws are the bedrock of our organization and they haven't been updated since August 30, 2015. If elected I will do my part by ensuring business meeting minutes are timely so the Bylaws Committee can do its job.

I am a skilled amateur photographer. I love working with organizers and tournament directors to capture special moments, especially at scholastic tournaments. Many of my photos covering Texas Women’s Championships, Texas Armed Forces Championships, Red River Shoot Outs, BRAZOS, Region Championships, Arlington Chess Opens, and other events are published on chess websites and the TCA Facebook page.

I want to use my photography and art skills to promote chess (such as a "Who's Who in TCA" yearbook), increase TCA fundraising and develop opportunities for youth players to go to National tournaments. If elected TCA Secretary I can use that position as a foundation for facilitating that and other worthy causes.
