Funding officer resignation and call for applications

Dear members of the South African Schools’ Debating Board,

It with sadness we announce the resignation of Dylan Smith from the position of funding officer. His professional responsibilities made it difficult for him to fulfill his responsibilities on the board. We appreciate his work in the Eastern Cape and his role as the convener of NSDC 2012.

The NEC wishes him well in all his future endeavours.

This means that applications are now open for the position of Funding Officer. The role of funding officer according to the constitution of the SASDB is as follows:

the Funding Officer shall serve a term of two years, and shall source funding for the Board’s core programme, specifically for:
(i) the NSDC;
(ii) the SASDA;
(iii) the South African Schools Debating Team’s (SASDT) participation in the World Schools Debating Championships (WSDC) 
and to participate in discussion and issues up for voting within the SASDB NEC.

Applications should be submitted to on or before 4 March 2013.
