The successful passing of the WCA Competition Announcement Policy Version 2.0 established the WCA Competition Announcement Team that is in need of a leader. The WCA Competition Announcement Team (WCAT) is an Advisory Committee of the WCA which is responsible for approving and announcing WCA Competitions.

The applications are open to everyone; it’s not a requirement to hold a current position in the WCA to be considered. Candidates are expected to fulfill their terms (24 months) and to spend at least 8 hours per week on average to work for the Team. The qualities expected of candidates are:
1. Strong leadership skills
2. Attention to detail
3. Good knowledge of Regulations and policies
4. Excellent communication skills

Due to the time-sensitive nature of this work, the Leader of this committee must be very responsive to email, mostly within 24 hours. The WCAT will need to process approximately 40 requests per week, which generates 150-200 emails.
