How is the BJCP organized?

The principal component of the BJCP is, of course, the general membership of over 10,000 judges at various ranks and levels of experience. The members are assigned to one of seven regions based on geography. Regions include all parts of the US and Canada. The members who live elsewhere in the world are arbitrarily assigned to the Northeast region.

The members in each region elect a representative, by a simple majority of the vote, to represent the region and sit on the BJCP Board of Directors. The term of office is three years and they are staggered in time so that there is continuity on the board after each election.

The members of the board elect, from among themselves, the constitutional offices of president, vice president, and treasurer. The board also appoints non-voting directors to perform such duties as necessary to run BJCP’s various activities.
