The WCA has recently published the Code of Conduct and updated the Competition Safety Policy.

The new Code of Conduct can be found here. This document acts as a standard of actions and behaviors of any member of the WCA, including Registered Speedcubers, Competitions Organizers, guests, WCA Officials, and users on the official WCA Forum.

The safety policy has been updated to clarify that the holding of competitions within a region must be able to be done safely and includes a reminder that the Board has the right to cancel a competition if it is no longer safe to hold. The new version of the WCA Competition Safety Policy can be found here.

The WCA Advisory Council (WAC) is seeking new members to assist the council.

The application is open to all WCA members.

What is the WAC and what do they do?

The biggest task of the WAC is to be an intermediary between the community and the WCA Staff - to give the community a voice when important topics are being discussed. The Community Representatives are a vital part of that process. More information about the main functions of the WAC can be found here: WCA Motion 20.2019.01

The council has 2 sub-teams - Community Representatives and WCA Representatives. This announcement is for Community Representatives, who make up the majority of the council and are not members of WCA Staff, meaning that anyone except WCA Staff can apply. If you have never held a formal position in the WCA before, this an exciting opportunity to contribute towards making the WCA even better!

Current key projects of the council involve moderation and management of the forum and developing channels to gather community feedback useful for the WCA.
