Jennifer Shahade's last day at US Chess will be Wednesday, September 6, following her resignation as the Women's Program Director, a position she has held since 2018.

US Chess wishes Shahade the best as she seeks new opportunities, and we are grateful to her for her work building what was then a brand-new programmatic area for us. Executive Director Carol Meyer says, "Thank you to Jennifer for her many contributions to the US Chess Women’s Program and for her years in the Communications Department. We at US Chess wish her well in her next professional chapter."
