SPA Judges & Lecturer’s Committee – Bulletin

To: All SPA Members, Clubs, & Judges

Dear Members,

This is a quick bulletin from the SPA Judges & Lecturers Committee to give you a few updates that may be of interest.

Firstly, for those of you who do not know us, as perhaps you are new members, we have the role to support the judging function within the SPA member clubs.

Amongst other things we seek out new judges, train & assess them, and then support them throughout their tenure as a judge.

You can see what we do on the SPA website, www.surreypa.org.uk under the Judges & Lecturers.

We wanted to let you know that we are actively seeking new judges at the moment. We have a number of club members who have put their name forward as we will be running at least one introductory session over the next few months followed by some training and then a training and assessment day a bit later in 2018.

This year by popular request we have introduced a continual development programme to support judges in their role to help keep them current and to refresh their technique & knowledge. To date this has been well received and will continue with input from all the judges.

We would very much like to encourage any club member to review the criteria and if interested to apply through the website or drop one of our team a note.

Warm regards

Steve Kingswell

Judges Committee
