2013-2014 Treasurer Platform for Vladislav Bardalez

Vladislav Bardalez

Hello, my name is Vladislav Bardalez, but most of my friends call me Vlad. I am an active student at Victoria Park C.I and  have taken an interest in chess from an early age. I have been volunteering with CITL since 2009 and over the years I have gained a lot of experience running a branch at Brookbanks Library. Through my years of experience, I know I am a suitable candidate for the position of the CITL treasurer for the 2013- 2014 session. I have gotten a grasp of the financial aspects behind running the large program CITL has become. Not only have I received experience through volunteering with CITL, but I have acquired a plethora of skills through Cadets. I am currently a staff member at my squadron and as a staff member I am constantly faced with many responsibilities such as, organizing activities and trips for a squadron of over 160 members. This includes both financial and schedule aspects of planning. I am constantly in a position of a leader and role model, and through this I am able to work well with my other staff members in order to accomplish large-scale activities that involve my entire squadron.

 In addition to this, I believe that getting donations from sponsors and donors is crucial for the expansion of the CITL to other cities in Ontario and to improve branches that are currently running. Through the many connections I have made through cadets like the North Toronto Sponsoring Committee and through other programs like Duke of Edinburgh I have realized that there are many organizations that could be interested and keen in sponsoring a growing organization such as CITL.

Fundraising is another point I would like to touch upon. The cashbox or donation box that is seen in the chess festivals is a decent way to collect funds, but there needs to be more interactive ways to fundraise more money. Once idea could be setting up a canteen in events like the Annual Festival, which would create a profit at the end of the day that would go back into the program. The idea of a raffle to win prize such as a chess set or chess clock can be an incentive to parents and players to support the CITL and at the same time have a chance to win a prize. It’s a “Win Win” situation.

With the dedication and passion I have shown for CITL, along with the many skill sets I can bring to the executive board, I see myself as the ideal candidate to be next year’s CITL Treasurer.
