Emil Sutovsky, the ACP (Association of Chess Professionals) President elected a year ago published the annual report summarizing the organization's work during 2012.

The President of ACP mentioned that ACP is proud of  "the three major events we have organized in 2012 - ACP Women Cup in Tbilisi, Women's World Rapid and Blitz Championships in Batumi and the ACP Golden Classic in Amsterdam all were a great success, but of course, that is just a beginning."

According to Sutovsky "A lot has been done in 2012. The number of the ACP members has increased drastically - today the ACP unites almost 1000 members, who represent 81 countries.

The ACP Board waived the membership fee for 2012. In spite of that, this year was the first after a very long break when ACP earned more than it spent.

The ACP has managed to push really important changes in the regulations of the World Championship Cycle and also heavily contributed to the increase of the prize funds for many events - starting from the Continental Championships and Grand Prix to the Women's Title Match. [...]

We managed to establish the constructive dialogue between the ACP and national federations, continental institutions and FIDE."

Finally Sutovsky stated: "I know - we have achieved a lot. But the hard work must continue, and it will be continued."
