Toastmasters Contest Chief Judge
Do you love paperwork? Then the role of chief judge is yours. Because there is a boatload of paperwork that the chief judge has to manage.
I guess they called this organizer the Chief Judge because she is – wait for it – in charge of the judging and the judges. And the ballots. And the ballot counters and the timers and… all that paperwork.
The chief judge is technically not a judge. They have no votes in the contest at all. I tend to think of the Toastmasters contest master as a ringmaster in a circus – the one out front, directing the audience’s attention to the next attract. The Chief Judge is more like the backstage manager – handling the logistics.
