A Brief Suggestion for Future Elections to the Referee’s Commission
There was a delay and reboot to the election of the Vice President of Referee Development for the Referee’s Commission. There seems to be a lack of communication between the National Office and the Referee’s Commission and the working referees who compose the potential candidates for the role and the members eligible to cast a vote in the election.
A simple suggestion to improve the process going forward is to explain the position and make an appeal for applicants at every morning meeting at each NAC. This personal appeal from Head Referees and existing members of the RC can help drive interest, and directly answer any questions which might lead to increased applicants.
