I'm building an online community to help US Fencing hire and develop referees more effectively. Right now, inefficiencies in communication and lack of transparency mean people pay for the privilege of working and large events are understaffed. The first step in changing this is figuring out what the heck is going on today. To do this I'm creating tools for referees to share your experiences. Ultimately, I want to help the USFA hire and train referees as efficiently as possible by creating an online bidding system for referee hiring.
