FIDE ARB End of the Year recap - Day 7
Tuesday, 31 December 2019 19:21
Our website is a main point of contact to the public, and we reactivated our Facebook page @FIDEARB in the last quarter of the year to be in touch with a wider audience.
This daily recap is somehow more intensive than the usual pace of publishing, however, almost 150 news were published in the year and the Monday evening update of arbiters' list is a ritual part of our online life too!
We would like to thank the arbiters who share their contributions on the dedicated page: local language translation of the manual, support for lectures, explanations on specific topics, tools ...
In 2020, we intend to be more interactive online with you, and continue to reinforce the skills of our arbiters worldwide!
You are most welcome to like and interact with the Facebook page in order to contribute to the development of the arbiter sector in chess.

FIDE ARB End of the Year recap - Day 6
Monday, 30 December 2019 23:39
As of Dec. 31st 2019, FIDE counts almost 13000 licensed arbiters (9503 National Arbiters, 1844 FIDE Arbiters and 1612 International Arbiters) and 1000 arbiters of any level flagged as inactive.
For 2019, the commission already reviewed 375 title applications submitted to the Presidential Board and almost 200 are pending for the coming Congress. The volume of work on the commission and FIDE Title side is huge and we would like to thank those who are involved in this checking process!
You may have noticed earlier deadlines to submit title applications than in the past. The main objective is to improve quality and avoid applications being rejected (i.e. money lost by applicants). Short after the deadline, all applications are reviewed and federations missing elements are contacted to fill in the gaps (20% of total applications are concerned). In this way, the report submitted to the PB is final (no changes are made after the vote by the PB anymore on the lists, as all is already double checked with federations) and contains as few rejected and conditional applications as possible.
Titles are our brand! In 2020, the commission will focus on another key aspect related to the arbiters, to reinforce the brand: the activity. Categories of arbiters directly depend on activity and we should improve monitoring to make it possible to automate the calculation of categories and better follow the needs worldwide.

And today, we would like to recognize arbiters from Women World Championship cycle:
Women’s Candidates Tournament 2019 - Kazan, Russia (June)
Women's FIDE Grand Prix Series 2019 1st Leg - Skolkovo, Russia (September)

FIDE ARB End of the Year recap - Day 5
Sunday, 29 December 2019 22:40
FIDE relies on collaboration between commissions, federations and affiliated organisations to keep improving in good synergy.
In 2019, our commission maintained good connexions with commissions under new leadership. We tried as much as possible to work in collaborative mode and will for sure step up in 2020, also with more interactions with continental organisations!

Warm thanks for the fruitful team work:
- on training and development, with Women Commission and PDC
- on regulations, with the Rules Commission
- on tournaments, with Fair Play Commission
- on disciplinary topics, with Ethics Commission
- on selection of arbiters, with Events and Global Strategy Commissions
- on general arbiter topics with the ECU arbiters council

We still have a lot to do, but we built solid foundations to move forward!

Let's emphasize an initiative which is important for us to develop in the future! The call of interest currently open for the Olympiad is a new way to approach the selection of arbiters.
Federations are our members and they will keep their word in sending arbiters to official events. However this is important for us to better know our arbiters and increase interactions, for better Human Resource management and synergy with GSC and EVE when it is question to nominate arbiters in World events.

And today, we would like to recognize arbiters from World Rapid and Blitz Championships:
IMSA World Masters Championship 2019 - Hengshui, China (May)

FIDE ARB End of the Year recap - Day 4
Saturday, 28 December 2019 23:05
Quality! For the benefit of chess events and players! How to improve, knowing the huge variety of situations covered by the commission and arbiters in general?

1. Reducing variability in existing seminars: we assessed more than 70 recent FIDE Arbiter exams, to give guidelines to FIDE lecturers on the design of their exams.

2. Improving arbiters' preparation to world events: once arbiters are selected for world events involving big teams, we want to generalize team building and preparation, as was done in St Petersburg 2018 and Moscow 2019 World Rapid and Blitz.

3. Offering full curriculum, as much as possible: the new federation of Saint Lucia was used as a pilot to train arbiters and support assignments for an actual tournament experience, rather than direct FIDE Arbiter title from the seminar. Many thanks for the collaboration of FIDE PDC and Chess Confederation for Americas!
