The 2019 TAFF (Trans-Atlantic Fan Fund) Race is now officially open for nominations for the North America to Europe leg. Nominations will be taken until November 22, 2018.
Voting to select the TAFF delegate will commence on December 1, 2018 and continue until April 22, 2019. The winning delegate will attend the 77th World Science Fiction Convention in Dublin, Ireland (https://dublin2019.com/) from August 15 – 19, 2019, and assume the duties of the next North American administrator of TAFF upon returning home.
The TAFF administrators say:
If any North American fan is considering standing for the 2019 TAFF race, now is the time to line up your nominators and have them contact the administrators informing them of the nominators’ intentions.
Candidates will need three North American fans and two European fans known to the Administrators to nominate you: these people must contact the current Administrators by November 22, 2018 (American Thanksgiving Holiday), informing them of whom is being nominated. Potential delegates will also need to send an official statement of standing for TAFF to the administrators (contact information provided below) listing their nominators, plus a 101-word platform statement, and a $20 (USD) bond fee sent via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org.
More details about TAFF can be found at David Langford’s excellent website, taff.org.uk
