Trainee Judges

All judges have to start somewhere. In Empress, we have trainee judges that must go through a rigorous process to become sanctioned judges. To become a trainee judge you must be a current member of ECBC and be sponsored by a branch. You must be a member for at least five years and show in sanctioned shows for two consecutive years. You must have ten standard and ten mutation pelts or animals combined for two years that receive 1st place or higher at sanctioned shows.

To complete your training to become a sanctioned judge for Empress you must follow these steps. Must assist in the judging of three of each of the following ECBC-sanctioned shows: (1) standard live animal (2) mutation live animal. A trainee judge must attend two ECBC-sanctioned judging seminars held in conjunction with the Annual National Meeting. A trainee judge must have judged with four different ECBC authorized judges. Once all of this is complete and has been submitted to the national office by the supporting branch, the trainee must take one final test at a national meeting. If the test is passed, you have become an Empress Judge! If the test is not passed, the trainee must judge an additional sanctioned show and may make another attempt at the test the next year. Three failed attempts and the trainee will not be allowed to become an Empress Sanctioned Judge.

Keeping this in mind, if you or your branch are planning on putting on a sanctioned show, we encourage you to contact a trainee. A trainee must pay their own airfare and expenses to attend the show so it does not cost your branch extra to invite them. The more experience these trainees receive, the better they will be able to serve Empress. So we ask that you invite a trainee to your sanctioned show and help a future Sanctioned judge of Empress!
