The CEA was founded in 2009 and is growing quickly.  If you’d like to be part of that growth there are a lot of easy ways to get involved.

1) Talk with your local chess club or store.  The CEA works by partnering with chess stores and clubs in the US and elsewhere who hope to support sprouting chess clubs abroad.  There are a number of ways of doing this, for example, holding a tournament and donating a portion of the tournament fees or holding a CEA collection/donation box at your store or club.

2) Post links to this blog and our website (*currently under construction*) from your profile page or blog.  Help spread the word.  If you email the CEA at the email address below or respond to this page with contact information you can also order brochures for a small donation to cover printing costs.
