Dear WCA Community,
The Board is providing notice as required by Bylaw 2.8 of the Annual Meeting of WCA members which will be held on October 4th at 19:00 UTC. Members will be able to tune into this meeting via a livestream hosted on the WCA Twitch. In this folder you will find the information packet related to the annual meeting which contains all relevant documentation which will be discussed at the meeting.
We look forward to your participation in the upcoming annual meeting.
Ethan Pride, on Behalf of the Board of Directors
There will be an appointment of a new WCA Ethics Committee (WEC) Leader, as Callum Goodyear is stepping down from this position. We would like to thank Callum for the work he has done leading the Committee.
Candidates are expected to fulfill their terms (24 months) and to spend at least 6 hours per week on average to work for the Committee. The qualities expected of candidates are:
- Clear background
The application period is open for candidates to submit their candidacy documents until October 10th, 2020, 23:59 UTC privately to the WCA Board (email@example.com).
The period of validity is until December 31st, 2020.
The WCA Software Team (WST) is looking for new contributors!
The WST plays a central role in the WCA by developing, scaling, and maintaining the software solutions that help the organization handle the continuous community growth.
Some examples of such software solutions are:
- The WCA website, that you are probably browsing on a regular basis.
- TNoodle, the scrambles library and its frontend, used by all Delegates during competitions.
- WCA Live, which is the main platform for score taking and getting live results during competitions.
All WST projects are open source and hosted on the organization's GitHub: https://github.com/thewca/.
As such, anyone willing to help can do so: it is not a requirement to hold a current position in the WCA to be contributing.
The WCA is proud to present our new Competition Safety Policy with which we are asking all Staff members and competitors to familiarize themselves as competitions are reintroduced to their local communities. All competitions must adhere to this policy until it is revoked by the WCA Board.
The safety of our competitors and Staff are paramount to ensure that competitions will be successful into the future. Although competitions may look different, we still hope to celebrate the joy of cubing together as we can. Please reach out to us if you have any questions about the safety policies.
