Call for Proposals for new PACE Members

Post by fett0001 »

It's that time of year again, quizbowlers! The Partnership for Academic Competition Excellence is again seeking nominations for new members!

Nominations are due to secretary Michael Hundley at [email protected] by July 1 at 11:59 PM Eastern time.

PACE has many objectives, which include:
• to promote and encourage the growth of quality high school invitational tournaments around the country,
• to provide guidance or assistance to other colleges or high schools that wish to organize such tournaments,
• to encourage innovation and creativity in academic competition,
• to establish visibility for college academic team programs that run high school tournaments,
• to foster cooperation among college and high school programs in preparation for upcoming regional, state, or national tournaments,
• to encourage participation of teams in tournaments across the country prior to regional, state, or national tournaments,
• to allow all teams adequate opportunity to practice, compete, and socialize among other fellow competitors,
• to produce the question set for and run the National Scholastic Championship each year.

You can read more about what PACE is and what we do here.

Nominations

If you know someone who is exceptionally qualified to contribute to these goals, please consider sending their name, along with a short statement of their track record of contributions thus far, to [email protected].

Current high school students are not eligible.

Membership

PACE members commit themselves to helping run the NSC and serving as leaders in their local quizbowl circuits, as well as attending virtual meetings every month or so. PACE members pay no dues and contribute largely on a volunteer basis. PACE frequently collaborates with other high school and college academic competition organizations to achieve greater success in its projects.

If you're interested in learning more about what it's like to work for PACE, feel free to take a look at a 2016 thread on the subject, or reach out to me or any other PACE officer.

PACE seeks out public nominations and inducts new members twice a year, in January and June. New members are invited after an internal election. A list of new PACE members will be posted later this month.
