The 79th Internet-based FIDE Arbiters’ Seminar was held on the consecutive weekends of 20th/21st June and 27th/28th June 2020. It was organized by the ECF, under the auspices of FIDE. The lecturer was IA Lara Barnes, assisted by IA Alan Atkinson. Eleven (11) arbiters from five Federations (ENG, NOR, WLS, USA and PHI) participated in the seminar, and we extend congratulations to the following ECF members, who succeeded in the test —
Phill J Beckett; Emma-Jane Billington-Phillips; Chun Chiu; Hok Chiu; Michael Green; Chun Rong Lu; Dylan Mize
They will be awarded a norm for the title of FIDE Arbiter, following approval by the next FIDE Council, and we wish them well for their future progress as arbiters.
— Alan Atkinson, ECF Manager of Arbiters
