[On behalf of the Victoria University Debating Society]
The Victoria University of Wellington Debating Society is pleased to open the selection process for up to three Deputy Chief Adjudicators (DCAs) for Australs 2012. The reason for the increase from two to three further additions to the Adjudication Team is because Steve Hind has unfortunately had to pull out.
Applications for DCA positions are now being accepted, and will be open until midnight on Sunday 15 April.
If you are interested in becoming a DCA, please complete an application form and email the CA, Stephen Whittington, at firstname.lastname@example.org. If there are any questions about the form, please get in touch with Steve.
The application form is available at: http://www.australs2012.com/dca_application_form.doc.
On Monday 16 April, a list of the applicants will be circulated via the Australs, All-Asians and AUDC mailing lists for feedback.
At this point people should feel free to email the CA with their feedback on any or all of the candidates. All communication will be treated in the strictest confidence, and all feedback provided by the Austral-Asian community will be considered. The successful applicant(s) will be announced on Friday 27 April.
Please note that we have no fixed views on whether two or three additional DCAs will be appointed.

I am very excited to announce that applications to DCA the Pan African Universities Debating Championships are now officially open. The tournament will be held at TUT and is scheduled to run from the 9th till the 16th of December. I urge all as many people to apply and spread the word. We have three DCA positions open. As is tradition the one spot will be allocated to an international DCA, whose travel costs will be covered, with the remaining two spaces open for african applicants. I have to stress however that the positions will be awarded on merit and other relevant criteria such as experience. So make sure you send a kick ass CV.
To officially apply for the positions, please send a full debating CV detailing all your debating/ adjudication experience (make it as colourful and exciting as it can be, but don't lie: BIG BROTHER is watching you). Along with this please send a letter of motivation and a list of 10 original sample motions. With regards to the motions please try and make your topics range from political, economic and social.
I feel it is only fair to outline the various responsibilities that a DCA
will face before and during this tournament:
- adjudicating in the tournament
-Involved in training- record videos and reviewing content. (before)
-tab room logistics
-must respond within hours to e-mails.
The deadline for African applications is Friday the 13th, and for International applicants is 20 April. Please email all applications to email@example.com
I am super keen to get as many applications as possible so like I said earlier spread the word.
Eternal peace, love and happiness to all

This is a screenshot of the registration form to be posted on March 31st 2012 at 3 p.m. Berlin time (GMT+2) on this blog. The form is hosted by Google. If you know that you have trouble accessing Google forms, please contact us.
Each institution may register between one and three teams. Each institution must bring and is guaranteed at least n-1 adjudicators. Teams may also choose to register as many adjudicators as teams (n). By registering three teams and n adjudicators you are registering three adjudicators; by registering two teams and n adjudicators you are registering two adjudicators, etc. While we cannot guarantee more than n-1 spots for institutional adjudicators, we think it is probable that institutions who wish to bring more than n-1 adjudicators will be able to do so. If you wish to register more than n adjudicators, please contact us.
When will the results be up?
We will issue a preliminary confirmation of the reception of registration data on the evening of March 31st. Results of the allocation of teams will be made public after 3 p.m. on April 3rd and updated continuously until the close of registration at 3 p.m. on April 7th. Final results of the allocation of teams and institutional adjudicators will be made public after the close of registration.
