Judges for trials, info from AWDF

Postby annecamper » Mon Jan 03, 2011 9:35 am

Posted at the request of Al Govednik, AWDF President as provided by Michelle Testa, AWDF Secretary. I will be sending this to all clubs and preparing a document for the policies and procedures site on the webpage.


All SV Judge requests should be submitted to UScA President Lyle Roetemeyer from the parent organization of the club wishing to have an SV Judge.

FCI and other International Judge Requests:
All requests should be submitted to the AWDF Secretary from the parent organization of the club wishing to have an international Judge

UScA Judges:
When asking for a working SchH / IPO judge from USA:
You must contact and send a letter of request to the USA DOJ Nathanial Roque. The policy states that the UScA Regional Director director needs
to be contacted first BUT if your club is NOT a UScA club please direct
your requests to Mr. Roque.

DVG Policy for securing Judges
AWDF organizations that wish to obtain a DVG judge for a trial, all
applications and requests must be sent to the LV/DVG America Chief of
judges, Hartmut Beckmann. By DVG/Germany rules, no judge can be
assigned or accept an assignment to a trial that the application has not
gone through the Landesverband chief of judges, whether that's here or
in Germany. Hartmut's e-mail address is: Hartmut.Beckmann@qwest.com.

Judges not recognized internationally or by other AWDF member clubs
Please keep in mind titles attained under judges that are not recognized outside the United States may hinder teams wishing to attain new titles, compete nationally and possibly internationally under the AWDF umbrella.
I have included the following references posted below.
