The Judge Responsible is working to propose a new wave of promotions until the 9th of April including the 2016 points and as soon as this is ready, a new application request for the Roatan Jury will be sent to all judges. Based on the Assembly suggestions, the applications will need to include a short presentation from each judge, so the voting countries can make better informed decisions.


Carla and Alex started working on questions for an eventual judge exam that may be implemented for the validation of the course and renewals after longer inactivity periods. Experienced judges are welcome to join the work group by contacting Carla or the Judge Responsible office.


The IT Officer sent a report with the implementation status of the website project and the identified flows will be covered by our internal IT people in collaboration with the initial provider.
