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.
We are happy to announce that the WCA Board of Directors has a new member: Chris Wright!
An anonymous election took place among the WCA leaders and delegates in accordance with Motion 5.2018.1 who approved Chris’s application. We are glad to bring Chris onto the WCA Board and we wish him luck in his new position.
These changes have become effective immediately.
Chris’s application can be viewed to all interested in seeing it here.
We are informing you that the winning candidate to host the WCA World Championship 2019 is Melbourne, Australia!
We believe that their plan was the strongest among the four candidates and that their team will lead to a successful championship next year.
Thank you to the applicants from Brest, Belarus and Beijing/Guangzhou, China for their submissions. You can view all of the application documents here.
