As a result of our recent application period, a new Senior Delegate has been appointed. For the Latin America region, the Board received the applications of Natán Riggenbach and José Garrido. After deliberation, they decided to appoint Natán Riggenbach for the position.

The appointment is effective immediately. You may find both applications here.

We want to thank both applicants for their willingness in helping the WCA and the Speedcubing Community even more than they currently do now. Good luck to Natán in his new role!
