Re: Lobbying for UIL Judges
Yes this is all about who you know. Don't be afraid to shake some hands at the region meetings. You never know where life will take you. If you ever end up teaching in a different region, you're more likely to get a call to judge in your old region if you've established good rapport with your colleagues. Volunteer to coordinate a region band or serve on a committee. These are often thankless jobs but they help make you memorable. Good luck and congrats on getting on the list!
I am now able to be a UIL judge for all band contests(marching, concert and sight reading), and I am currently on the TMAA provisional list. So now I am ready to go out and judge especially C&SR. Since I am not as well known as others in the Texas band director world, what are some ways to try to get my foot in the door and get calls and emails for opportunities to be a judge. Travel will never be a problem and I usually take my band to C&SR in early march. Marching band would be more difficult because my band goes when everybody else goes. Thanks in advance.
