How to be a Chief Adjudicator, with Monica Forman (CA of Astana EUDC)
2020 Oct 0859m 39s
Today we speak with Monica Forman. Monica was the Chief Adjudicator of Astana EUDC. Having organised such a large - and online - event, you'll learn everything you need to know for organising such an event from a motion-setter's perspective. But being a CA is more than coming up with motions. It is about finding and training the best judges. And it is about making everyone have a great time.  It also helps if the person who you are setting a motion about personally agrees with the motion and watches the debate!
