Contact the ECF Publicity Manager

Post by Mark Jordan » Thu Feb 18, 2016 1:51 pm

As English Chess Federation Publicity Manager my job is to positively publicise the work of the Federation, chess in England, and the activities of English chess players abroad. Whilst I try to keep up to date with whatever is going on I don't hear about everything and I would therefore appreciate posts alerting me to interesting events or achievements which I can then use as a basis for a piece on our website, Facebook or both or, perhaps, as material for news stories in the press or on other net platforms. I know there are problems as there always are but the emphasis here is very much on POSITIVE! I volunteered for this role because I have a life-long passion for chess and I want to contribute to it being presented in a positive light to the general public and actual or potential supporters, and to improve the environment in which chess is played at grass-roots and higher levels. So if you are sympathetic to these aims please send me positive news I can use!

The Danny Gormally simul at Hebden Bridge - has this been on the ECF website?

I don't do Facebook, I know I am not the only one on here - I thought it would have been on the main ECF website

Quite a few people do look at the FB and, since I edit the profile myself, it is easy for me to put things up as and when I think it'd be of interest. There's quite a lot that does go on FB which does not appear on the website so it's worth checking it out. If all possible items were also on the website they'd disappear from the front page very quickly and would probably be missed by lots of the readers. I have to do a slightly different version of each article for FB or the website and I do not have editing rights for the latter so I have to send it to the office to be put up for me. Since I posted the article on a Saturday and it would not have appeared on the website until at least Monday it could be I decided I had to prioritise other things.

Why is there not a link to the Facebook page on the ECF home page? Have I missed it? Shouldn't be necessary to use Google.
