Call for Applicants - WCAT Leader (September 2018)

Announced by Lauren Clement on

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.

The application period is opened for candidates to submit their candidacy documents until September 24th, 2018, 23:59 UTC privately to the WCA Board (

The candidacy documents must be in PDF format, and must include:
- Brief personal introduction.
- Summary of activities done for the WCA.
- Ambitions as the WCAT Leader.

Candidates are additionally asked to send a copy of their applications which can be made public at the end of the application period.

The rights and duties of the WCAT can be found in the WCA Competition Announcement Policy.

The week after the application period, the WCA Board will make a selection by voting and will announce the new Leader, after confirmation among Senior Delegates and sitting Committee/Team Leaders by voting, as described in Section 4 of WCA Motion 10.2017.0.

Thank you in advance for your candidacies and support!
