Maryland Educational Chess Association
The Maryland Educational Chess Association (MECA) is a 501C3 nonprofit association. The headquarters is located in Lexington Park. The purpose of MECA is to share the joy and benefits of chess throughout Maryland. We have initiated four community programs in order to accomplish this task: The Maryland Seniors program, Chess in Maryland Schools program, Maryland Residents Program, Alternative Chess Therapy. MECA is presently employing these programs in the Tri-county area of Southern Maryland (Calvert, Charles & St. Mary's).
