Call for Applications for an NFA Video Production Manager

Description: The Video Production Manager will work closely with the NFA host prior to the NFA National Championship Tournament to ensure that necessary equipment/staff is available for taping designated elimination rounds at the NFA Championship. During the National Championship Tournament, the Video Production Manager will oversee the recording/streaming of designated elimination rounds and streaming of the award assembly. After the National Tournament, the Video Production Manager will oversee the outsourced editing of the  elimination round recordings (via an agreement between NFA and UCM), upload the edited recordings with titles to the NFA YouTube channel, provide the links to the NFA President and produce DVDs for the NFA archive. The National Council  will work with the Video Production Manager to provide financial support (if needed) to produce and edit high quality recordings/live streaming. 

Compensation:  During the National Tournament, the NFA Video Production Manager will be released from the judging pool to oversee the filming of the final rounds. The NFA Video Production Manager can either count as a full time judge for their school ( judging only the first two days of NFA) or can be paid as a full time hired judge (judging only the first two days of competition). 

Application: The application for the NFA Video Production Manager can be found HERE. Fill out the application and return to Karen Morris by December 15th, 2018.

 

Call for NFA National Championship Tournament Bids to Host

We are still looking for hosts for the 2020, 2021, 2022 National Championship Tournaments.   Although the National Championship Tournament is typically a five day tournament running from a Thursday-Monday on the 3rd week of April hosted on a college campus, the National Forensic Association National Council encourages creative hosting ideas.   NFA is willing to work with hosts to adjust the schedule in terms of length of the tournament (3-5 days) and days of tournament (Thursday-Monday or Sat-Tuesday schedule). The 2019 National Championship is being hosted by the City of Santa Ana and the Santa Ana Unified School District at the local high school and middle school.  For details about hosting, please visit https://hostingnfa.weebly.com/ .  Bids for 2020 are due by November 15th, 2018.  If you won’t host, then who will?


Call for Nominations for the NFA Hall of Fame

The Hall of Fame honors those students that made an impact while competing in forensics and continued to make an impact after leaving the activity.  Areas to consider are: forensics competitive excellence, forensics community citizenship, and forensics ambassadorship. The deadline for submissions for the NFA Hall of Fame is December 15, 2018.  Nomination form and details can be found HERE.  Nominations and questions should be send to Larry Schnoor, Chair of the NFA Hall of Fame Committee.
