A Heartfelt Farewell to Our Committee Member Kate

Kate Davison

We have been privileged to have Kate as an integral part of our committee for the last 2 years. Kate’s journey with Highlander began with her rich background and experience in the game – She brought with her a deep understanding of Legacy and her insights have been invaluable in shaping the direction of our format. Kate understood the role of the committee in our community, and along with her advocacy for diversity and inclusivity within our community, she always ensured that the voices of that community were heard and respected.

As Kate bids farewell to our committee and prepares to embark on her new adventure in the US, we extend our deepest gratitude for her contributions and her impact on our community. Wishing you all the best in your new endeavours, Kate. You will have to be our Aussie 7PH ambassador in Baltimore! Your presence will always be welcomed as an emeritus committee member and host for future streams.

Summary for application of the role

The Highlander Points Committee manages the health of the format by curating the Points List. Key responsibilities include attending regular meetings as well as liaising with the community via a variety of media.

If you have already gone through the application process previously, and still wish to be considered for a position, you do not need to fill out a new application, but we’d appreciate you reaching out to us and letting us know you’re still interested.

Selection Criteria

We expect to have a number of candidates, so we’d like you to answer a few questions for us to assist with our shortlist selection. Depending on how well members of the committee know you, we may also want to meet you at an event and discuss your interest further before making a decision.

While we are interested in details, we also don’t want essay responses. If your answer to a question is a sentence or less, we probably want more detail. If your answer to a question is more than a couple of paragraphs, you should try to be more succinct. You should try to avoid your total answers to the below exceeding 2 pages.

Not being able to provide an answer is not necessarily disqualifying, but we expect to look more favourably on people who can respond to each of these questions.
