Two new features went live today on CIPAonline.org!
First, the 2014 spiel sheet form is live.
Log in, and you will find the link on the right hand side in the blue 'Resources' box.
Please fill out your spiel information at least a week before your first show. You need to fill out a separate spiel form for each unit, but you only need to fill out the form once. If you want to change anything later (new staff, show title, commentary email address, etc.) then simply fill out another form. We will always use the most recent version for your unit, and we will delete the older versions. Please note that we have to export and process this data a few days before each contest, so last minute changes should be avoided.
VERY IMPORTANT: This form provides the email address to which your judges commentary will be emailed. Without an accurate spiel form, you may not receive your judge's commentary.
Second, there is now a form online that you can use to submit any concerns you have with a judge.
When you are logged in, a link to the form appears in the 'Resource' box and under the 'Contests' drop down menu at the top. For best results, we ask that you fill out this form within 7 days of the contest you had a concern about, but you may submit at any time. When you submit the form you will receive a confirmation, and a notification will be sent to each chief judge and the circuit president.
We hope this will increase transparency, and provide a constructive way to better our circuit!
The 2014 season is almost here - how exciting!
