Chess players are naturally competitive so set up a series of events, simultaneous displays, regular tournaments, a rating system, etc. A regular tournament at one game a week will ensure a certain amount of repeat business as a five round tournament requires that each participant appear every week.
A few weeks or a couple of months on try to arrange a match with another chess club.
Delegate authority so you are not running everything. After a couple of tournaments try to get another member to run the odd event, and get a team captain to set up matches, contact players etc...then it becomes everyone's chess club.

Ciao, I've recentley been appointed as director of a newborn chess club in my work space. I work for a very large militay installation, so hopefully we are going to have a large participation. We are getting new chess sets and all the gear to start. I was wondering if any of you could give me any insight or suggestions on how to run a chess club, since this is going to be the first time for me. Thanks for your time, Massimo
