The 2022 SEA Q4 Regional Conference – Step up the Plate will be held on Wednesday, November 09, 2022. This is to make way for the ongoing qualifiers for the region, which are mostly scheduled during the weekends. Please take note that this is a separate event from our upcoming End of the Year Conference.

Why Step up the Plate?

4 out of 5 of our presenters took on the challenge of a presenter role for a digital regional conference for the first time.  Each presenter will be guided by a mentor, to assist and guide them throughout the entire process. The 5th presenter serves as the backup presenter for our upcoming event.

This event will be a two-tracked event with 2 topics to be presented per track.

Track 1 will feature Community Building discussion; while track 2 will highlight Event Management topics.

The goal is to promote continuous education and training for all judges of the region.

Plus, to be able to reconnect and learn from fellow judges in the region.

Everyone is welcome to apply and attend, however, for international members of Judge Academy, due to the logistics reasons of the delivery of the support, your application may be declined.

Zoom will be the platform used and the link will be sent to attendees shortly before the conference date.

For the attendee role, please send your application on or before November 09, 2022. Application closes by 07:00 PM +8GMT  (7PM SGT/MYT/PHT | 6PM BKT/JKT)

Being an Effective Host by Brighton Lim
