BCSA Judge Selection Committee
 
It’s time to nominate our Judges for the 2018 Border Collie Nationals. Please note, there are changes for the membership nomination process for 2018. 
 
Judges for all venues except conformation will be selected based on nominations received from the membership. We will hold a nomination period commensurate with the previous nomination period and then select judges based on the number of nominations received.

Judges for conformation and sweepstakes will still be selected using the two-part nomination and voting system.

This will greatly reduce the workload for the judges selection committee. It also still maintains a system where the membership is selecting judges. The conformation judges nominated will be asked to submit a bio that will accompany the final voting procedure.
 
Nominations open on March 1 and close on March 31. The nominations will be announced on the BCSA website and in Borderlines as soon as all nominees are contacted and have accepted or declined the nomination, on or about April 30.   
 
Judge Nomination: Nomination submissions opens Monday, 03/01/17 at Midnight, 12:00 a.m. EST and ends 03/31/17 Midnight 12:00 a.m. EST. Early/late votes will not be counted. Full members may vote for a candidate once; multiple votes for the same candidate will not be counted.
