Dear World Debating Community,
We are writing to open the feedback process for DCA applications for the Middle East and Africa debating region. Particularly because of the high quality of applicants, it is more important than ever that we receive as much feedback as possible on candidates. Feedback will form a very significant part of decisions about DCA appointments.
We encourage all members of the international debating community to give feedback on any candidates they have any familiarity with. This includes those who are themselves candidates. Unfortunately, anonymous feedback cannot be taken into account; this is simply to ensure we know each piece of feedback is from a separate unique individual. All feedback is, however, entirely confidential, and will be seen only by the Chief Adjudicators.
We are seeking feedback on all aspects of candidates’ ability to do the DCA job. As well as feedback about ‘how good’ candidates are, feedback on candidate’s particular strengths and weaknesses are valued, as they help build a good all-round team. All feedback should be sent to both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com, and should include the word ‘Feedback’ in the subject-line. All feedback must be received by 1200 GMT on the 4th of February.
The candidates are:
Finally, if you believe you have applied to be a DCA but do not see yourself on the list above, please do get in touch.
Once again, please do send in your feedback; it will make a real difference to this process.
