Tomorrow is Day 1 of the 2019 Event Partner Summit in Greenville, Texas. The REC Foundation will Webcast all General Sessions starting at 8:00 AM CST. The link for the Webcast is:
We understand that EP’s want to be heard and have added more topics where Event Partners will be encouraged to give their feedback. We will have specific sessions to review last season’s changes. Some specific topics included in these review sessions are Bo3 to Bo1, STEM research project, Signature Events, Skills Only Events, Early Bird registration, Excellence Award and Code of Conduct.
We are also asking for input on such topics as Judge Feedback, Game Design considerations from EP perspective, training resources, RSM support, and hosting events.
Regarding some of the “hot” topics from this past season, we will have General Sessions to discuss Referee Certification and Event Partner responsibilities / certification. We will have breakout sessions on both days to discuss the DQ process, G1 and Code of Conduct (including revisions to address online harassment). There will be other breakout sessions to discuss how the REC Foundation defines “Student Centered” and to review judging.
EP Summit Sponsor MathWorks will host a General session on one of their new fascinating STEM products. The RECF will introduce our new Volunteer Management System (piloted at the 2019 VEX Robotics World Championship. We will also have a General Session hosted by the GDC to discuss VRC Tower Takeover & VIQC Squared Away. Finally, we will have other breakout sessions to discuss a wide range of technical and non-technical topics such as Wireless Raspberry Pi, Leagues and Grants.
And of course, we will answer Questions during dinner.
Once the EP Summit is complete, the REC Foundation will share contents from the Summit to get feedback from those in the community that were not able to attend.
