Regional Coordinator Leader Sebastian Pękala announces the supplementary selection process for the Regional Coordinator Advanced Role, as described in current Judge Program structure under the New New World Order.
At this time, we are accepting applications for the Brazil region. Due to current RC, Vinicius Quaiato, stepping down before the end of the term, new RC will be assigned the role until the end of September 2020, and then will be up for renewal.
The choice for the person holding a Regional Coordinator role has an impact on a community as a whole. Therefore, we strongly advise leadership of affected region to discuss this topic. All candidates should talk to their regional leadership before applying, and especially their current Regional Coordinators before applying (in order to prevent conflicts and make the potential handover much easier).
The RC position is available for Level 3 judges and Level 2 judges that are from within the region in question. Level 3 judges can apply for RC position in any region. However, strong preference will be given to in-region applicants. If you choose to apply while living outside the region, please explain why you think you think this circumstance is different and acceptable.
The application process will consist of two steps.
In step 1, candidates are required to provide their answers to three main questions about their vision of Regional Coordinator role for their region, and list contact information to 3 referring judges. The 3 judges need to live in at least 2 different areas of the region and should be of at least 2 different levels (1x Level 3 + 2x Level 2 judges, or such). These judges will be contacted to confirm that they think candidate fulfils the Qualities of Regional Coordinators and would be a good Regional Coordinator for their region. The referring judges will be also asked to write two paragraph recommendation for the applicant. First paragraph should focus on why they think applicant is a good RC candidate, and second – what should the candidate work on (areas for improvement). Each recommending judge can recommend only one candidate.
The questions for candidates to answer are listed below.
To apply, you need to fill in this form: https://goo.gl/forms/vqPvedBqbEezjG2B2
In case you have any questions about the process, or have trouble using the Google forms, you can email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org
After the window closes, all applications will be reviewed and graded by the Selection Committee against the minimal requirements to be the Regional Coordinator, and all applicants that meet the criteria will go to step 2.
Step 2 will consist of individual questions to the candidates, aiming to explore potential areas for improvement, and to determine the best candidate for the region. This step may be skipped for regions with only one candidate at this stage of the process, at the discretion of the Selection Committee.
Names of all applying judges will be posted after application window closes. (This announcement will be edited with those names added below this sentence)
If you have any information that could influence the selection, and you believe the committee should be aware of that while making the decision, please contact the committee by email: email@example.com
- Describe why you think you are a good candidate for the RC of your region.
- Describe what are the main challenges for judges in your region, what problems do you foresee will need fixing in the near future and what is your plan for your region.
- Describe how are you going to implement your plan, how are you going to engage judges in your region and include them in that implementation, and how does that compare to current organisation of your region.
The selection committee will consist of current Regional Coordinators (including the Regional Coordinator Lead, who will be the leader of this committee), and a number of Level 3 judges not holding the RC role. Exact committee composition will be posted on December 10th.
