Joan DuBois
Staff Bio

Joan is in her 51st year working for US Chess, currently known to many of our organizers around the country for making sure their TLAs appear online and print correctly. That’s not a typo—50 plus years, starting in 1969. The only other place she has worked besides US Chess was an eight-week stint at a girl scout camp, though she worked hard to become a pro bowler! She also loves fishing and riding her motorcycle—a CanAm Spider. So what has kept her interested in chess for so long? “Anyone can play and it makes one think and plan ahead and understand there are consequences for decisions we make, even in real life. Working for US Chess has brought many wonderful people into my life.”
