The CKA Staff

CKA Tournament Directors donate considerable time, resources and energy to sustaining and growing the series. As such, directors divide tasks, but also have specific roles. If you are looking to contact a CKA staff member about a specific issue or topic, arrange an interview, or ask a tournament related question, the following list may help you get started. The staff generally responds most quickly to inquiries sent through the CKA Facebook page.
