Judge Conference

Event Image

Hello all and welcome to the AU/NZ End of Year Conference Fiesta!

We will be running this event on the 11th of December, and will be operating with a dual digital/in person footprint. Our conference is focused on celebrating the reemergence of in-person events, and will have session that provide a balance between learning experiences and getting to know the community.

What do I need to do?

Apply if you are interested in coming!
If you are currently residing outside the AU/NZ region please get permission from your local organiser to attend this event instead of your local event. Please reach out to me if you need help with doing this.
If you are interested in hosting a group of judges please get in touch with me over slack or email ASAP so that I can coordinate everyone.
If you see something in the list that you are very interested in presenting or helping to present, please let me know.

Hybrid event?!? What to hecc is that?

Given the size of our region, and the different restrictions in different places, it’s impractical to get everyone physically together. That said, I’m sure that we’re all keen to get together, catch up and reconnect where it’s both possible and safe. To facilitate this, the JAc has approved us to use a mix of in-person and digital connection for this event. We will be using Discord as our central online method of communicating, and the hosts of each hub will ensure that they have a set up where everyone involved will be able to see, hear and be seen and heard at their event. We will be providing a list of these as the event draws nigh.

What will the sessions be?

We will have 3 ‘traditional’ presentations and 2 ‘special event’ type presentations. These will be:
1. Community management – How judges can help to shape and grow their community
2. Developing as a judge in an event-poor environment
3. Umm. I haven’t judged for two years. What have I missed? – A quick refresher on rules and policies that have changed and things you may have forgotten

And our two special events will be:
1. The return of Judge Trivia
2. Old Judges Tell Stories – An opportunity for old timers (like me) to share highlights of our judging careers and take questions from the audience

What else will be going on?

Throughout the event we will be organising small giveaways, challenges and allowing people time to split into breakout groups and just chat. This is a celebration and a chance to unwind while also learning something.

I can’t wait to see you all soon!
