Representatives

The FBA’s corps of very capable representatives preside over all FBA-sanctioned contests.  They are charged with the responsibility of ensuring the contest is conducted in accordance with the Official FBA Contest Rules.  They setup the venue for judging, enter the scores, and see to it that all FBA rules are followed and oversee the entire judging process.  As well, they have the final say on all onsite interpretations of the rules as they relate to products turned in by contestants and the fair judging of those products.

Currently, we are training additional FBA Reps in Florida, but we need help in Alabama and Georgia. The Rep Training and Recruitment committee is Ida Isaacs and Wendy Wolfe.

Qualifications to be a FBA representative are:

  1. Must be a FBA member in good standing.
  2. Must be a FBA Master Judge
  3. Must speak and read English.
  4. Must be able to lift 30 lbs. and be physically capable of stepping into and out of team trailers safely.
  5. Must have nominal computer skills and have a personal e-mail account.
  6. Must have an agreeable demeanor.
  7. Must be recommended by a sitting Rep to the FBA Board of Directors.
  8. Waivers of qualifications must be approved by a majority of the FBA Board of Directors.
  9. Must train under the supervision of a Lead Rep for a minimum of 5 sanctioned contest events.
  10. Must complete Rep training within 1 calendar year and receive final FBA Board of Director approval.
