AMTA Representative Information


AMTA Representatives are volunteers who give their weekends every February, March, and April to travel to AMTA-sanctioned tournaments and ensure that all AMTA rules and procedures are followed throughout the tournament.  AMTA Representatives are reimbursed for all travel expenses to, from and throughout their service to AMTA.  AMTA could not operate without individuals willing to volunteer their time to help make all AMTA tournaments fair.  If you have questions about what is required of an AMTA Representative, the application process, or anything else generally related to being an AMTA Representative, please contact Elizabeth Smiley, Chair of the AMTA Representative Committee.

AMTA Representative Application

The application for 2021 is available here.

Application Deadline: November 15, 2020

AMTA welcomes applications from individuals who possess meaningful experience in performing the tournament duties described in the AMTA Representative Manual at AMTA-sanctioned or invitational tournaments. Additionally, in order to maintain and enrich the diversity of its Representatives, AMTA welcomes and encourages applications from individuals of all backgrounds.

Note for 2021 Season: There will be no travel required to serve as an AMTA Representative for the Regional and ORCS tournaments. All of those tournaments will be held online for the 2021 Season. We expect that the basic functions of the AMTA Representatives (tabulating results, pairing rounds, adjudicating rule violations, etc.) will stay the same in this new virtual format. We will let you know about any changes to the AMTA Representative responsibilities well before the Regional tournaments begin.

If you have additional information to provide to the committee, please contact Elizabeth Smiley, Chair of the AMTA Representative Committee, with that information.  The committee will make decisions regarding AMTA Representatives in December of each year, and we will contact everyone that has completed an application with a decision.

Assigned AMTA Representative Information

Prior to service as an AMTA Representative, each volunteer will receive an email from the National Tabulation Director with information and instructions for their weekend of service to AMTA.  If you have been assigned to serve as an AMTA Representative in the coming season, the following are documents and forms that you will need throughout the weekend.  If you have questions during your weekend as an AMTA Representative, all inquiries should be directed to Johnathan Woodward, AMTA Tabulation Director.
