Application to Host Pre-Trial or Pre-Show for 2021 Nationals


Would your affiliate like to host a pre-trial or a pre-show for the 2021 ASCA National Specialty?

Affiliates who are interested in hosting a pre-trial or pre-show for the 2021 ASCA Nationals to be held in Bryan, Texas, October 29 – November 6, should submit their names to the Nationals Advisory Committee by March 31. All names will be put into a lottery draw for their desired event(s). An Affiliate may only host one event every four years, unless no other Affiliates are interested in hosting. The purpose of the lottery draw is to give a fair chance to all Affiliates who wish to take part in the ASCA National Specialty by hosting a pre-show/trial.

Interested Affiliates will complete the online application by the March 31, 2020, indicating that they would like to host.

Here is a link to the application:

These applications will be reviewed by the Nationals Advisory Committee to ensure the Affiliate has the expertise and workers to host the event they are volunteering for. Information provided to the National Advisory Committee will be assumed to be correct. The Committee will not be required to verify the information. The responding, qualified Affiliates will be placed in a pool of Affiliates for random selection. The random draw will be done by the Board at their Spring Board Meeting. The selection process will be completed at one time in full view of any who wish to attend the draw. All Affiliate names will be shown in the order of the draw, and then posted to the ASCA Website and any ASCA approved e-mail list. After the Nationals schedule and the pre-show and pre-trial contracts have been approved, the Affiliates will be asked, in order drawn, to select the pre-show/trial they wish to host. For example, number 1 will choose the date they want, followed by two, etc., until all pre-shows/trials have been spoken for.
