Dear WCA Community,
There will be four appointments of new WCA Committee/Team Leaders. Daniel Sheppard and Linus Frész are stepping down as Leaders of the WCA Disciplinary Committee and the WCA Communication Team, respectively. Daniel and Linus have deployed great work as Leaders, and we want to thank them for all their hard work and dedication all this time.
The World Cube Association will also be adding two brand new Advisory Committees: the WCA Ethics Committee and the WCA Quality Assurance Committee. The Ethics Committee will have the role to ensure that all the procedures followed by the WCA Staff and External Staff abide by its Code of Ethics. Also, our large growing rate makes a Quality Assurance Committee necessary, with the role to support and promote continuous quality improvement within the WCA, as well as worldwide application of quality standards to ensure consistent high quality of processes, WCA Staff, Regional Organizations, Competition Organizers, and Competition Staff.
Dear WCA Community,
Another anonymous election took place among the voting members of the WCA for director positions. We hereby inform you on the results and the corresponding changes in the WCA Board of Directors.
We are happy to announce that the WCA Board has two new members: Bob Burton and Alberto Pérez de Rada Fiol, and Chris Hardwick is stepping down from being in the Board of Directors. We thank Chris for his work for the WCA and our community. He has served on the WCA Board since July 2016 and has put in a lot of time and effort to develop the WCA. He will still remain leader of the WCA Financial Committee and a WCA Delegate for Georgia, USA.
These changes have become effective starting November 9th, 2017.
All three candidates gave permission to publish their application documents which can be viewed here:
The WCA Board of Directors are looking for an organization team to host South American Championship 2018!
Please discuss with the delegates in your country whether this is something you are willing and able to pursue. Organizing a competition of this size takes a significant amount of time and effort before and during the competition.
If you are interested, then send your application documents to Pedro Santos Guimarães at email@example.com. The application period ends on December 31st, 2017.
