Executive Board motion from August 2020: Suspend PanAm College Rule 5

By Mike Nietman - At the request of the College Chess Committee I move to suspend Rule 5 of the Pan-American Intercollegiate Team Chess Championships Official Tournament Rules for the fall 2020 and spring 2021 semesters.  Due to safety concerns as a result of COVID-19, colleges are permitting their students to take many, if not all, classes online. Consequently, many students will not meet the residence requirement this year.  This exemption does not apply to schools that are traditionally online-only institutions. This exemption is intended to apply to students who would, if not for reasons related to the coronavirus, meet the requirements of Rule 5.
