Hey all! Today is the first Tuesday of June so we have some reminders for you this month!
First off, our next Member Mailing will be in Mid-July, so on July 1st, we’ll be pulling all of our reports in order to make sure the delivery and distribution process goes as smoothly as possible. This means that the cut off date for the summer mailing will be June 30th. Please take the time to make sure your shipping address is accurate. If your address changes after this date, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to make any changes!
June 30th is also the last day to transfer over your Historical Judge Level to Judge Academy before they expire. That said, we understand that the world is in a weird place right now, and many judges may not be sure where Judging will fall for them. We started a Level Restoration Program for those judges who wanted to return to the community when Judge Academy first started. We intended this to be a temporary thing put in place in order to bring experienced judges back who were intrigued by the new structure or had taken a step back due to event maintenance requirements in the past. However, it’s clear that if our goal is to accommodate times when life gets in the way and judges need to take a break or step back from their role in the community, then this is something that we need to continue.
The requirements may change as requirements for different levels change, but the idea is that if you are Level 2 or Level 3, and do not join Judge Academy before your old level expires, if/when you are ready to start judging again, we want to make it easy for you to do so. This means that up to 5 years after your level expires, you can come back to judging with a shortened process. For level 2, that’s just an exam to ensure you are up to date on rules and policies. For Level 3, it’s a shortened Level 3 process.
June 30th is also the date that we’ve given current L1s to complete the Community Building track in the Level 1 Modules. The previous process for L1 did not include official soft skills coursework, and when Judge Academy brought back the idea of the Rules Advisor, we also raised the bar for what’s expected at Level 1. Any judge who certified under Judge Academy needed to complete the new requirements, and judges who brought over a historical Level 1 were required to complete the supplemental coursework in order to meet the new requirements and keep their Level 1 status. We are working on a report that will email reminders to anyone who has not completed the supplemental modules. If you believe you will not be able to meet these requirements by June 30th, please email us at Questions@JudgeAcademy.com as soon as possible so we can work with you to find a solution.
Finally (I promise I’ll get to promos next!) A quick word on conferences! I am still making my way through ALL the digital conference requests. I was hoping to finish responding to requests today, but it’s looking like those will finish going out tomorrow or Thursday, so thank you in advance for your patience on that!
OKAY PROMO TIME!
Notes on these Promos! These are the promos going out to Judge Academy members in Mid-July. These will not be going out to conferences.
That said, starting in July, the Jan/Feb promos (Spell Seeker, Demonic Tutor, Gamble, and Enlightened Tutor) will be added to the pool of possible supplements to the Conference mailings. This means that currently, conferences receive Arena Rector, Sylvan Tutor, and 2 of the 4 cards from the November mailing. Come July, conferences will receive Arena Rector, Sylvan Tutor, and 2 of the 8 cards from previous mailings.
SO! Here are the Summer 2020 Promos:
