How can I get involved in the APF as a State Chairman or meet director?
If you would like to get involved in the APF as a State Chairman, first you must check if your State already has a Chairman or not. Check the list of State Chairman on the WPC website. If your State does not have a Chairman, contact Amy Jackson, the APF Office Manager, to apply to be the State Chairman The duties of the State Chairman involve running the State’s annual State Championship meet, and maintaining the State Records. The Chairman also would help set up and run any other meets that others put on in the State. As the State Chairman (or just as a meet director in general), you keep $1 from each of the new APF cards you sell at your meets.
If your State does have a Chairman you can contact them about running meets. You will need to first set up things with your State Chairman, and then will need to get an APF sanction form from Amy Jackson. You will need to fill out that form and send it back to Amy with the $35 sanctioning fee. After the meet, you will need to send the official results, possible drug tests, and any record application to Amy at the APF Office as well. If you are interested in running a National or World meet, you must first bid for it through Amy Jackson and Kieran Kidder. If your bid is accepted, the sanctioning fee is $250 for a National or World meet. Some other qualifications must be met for a National and World meet as well, like providing hotel rooms for judges, having proper equipment, and a number of other items. If interested, contact Amy Jackson for the full list of qualifications.
