El archivo subido contiene información sobre importantes cambios en el Convenio de Facilitador y los Requisitos
de Renovación de Certificación.

El nuevo Convenio del Facilitador se aplica a todos los Facilitadores que renueven su certificación en el 2024 y después. El nuevo Convenio del Facilitador tiene varios cambios importantes, incluyendo:

Párrafo 3:

Párrafo 5:

En general, el nuevo Convenio del Facilitador se ha hecho más fácil de navegar con títulos claros para cada disposición importante y un lenguaje simplificado.

Período de implementación para el nuevo Convenio del Facilitador

Hay un período de adaptación hasta el 2026 para los facilitadores con fechas de vencimiento de certificación entre enero del 2024 y diciembre del 2026. Este proporcionará tiempo suficiente para cumplir con los nuevos requisitos de renovación sin perder su certificación.

Si renueva su Convenio de Facilitador antes del 31 de diciembre del 2026, tendrá un período de certificación intermedio de dos años durante el cual deberá cumplir con los nuevos Requisitos de Renovación. Una vez que cumpla con los nuevos Requisitos de Renovación, su próximo período de certificación será de siete años.

Por ejemplo, si su certificación vence el 1 de septiembre de 2024, firmará el nuevo Convenio del Facilitador en esa fecha por un período de dos años, hasta el 31 de agosto del 2026. Si cumple con los nuevos requisitos de renovación el 1 de junio del 2026, se le ofrecerá un nuevo Convenio del Facilitador con un plazo completo de siete años, que comenzará el 1 de junio del 2026 y expirará el 31 de mayo del 2033.

¿Por qué se están produciendo estos cambios?

Estos cambios en el Convenio de Facilitador y en los Requisitos de Renovación tienen como objetivo asegurar la calidad y la integridad consistentes del Samurai Game a nivel mundial. Con más Facilitadores que dan el Juego en diferentes entornos, se ha vuelto cada vez más difícil monitorear la consistencia y calidad del Juego. Este proceso más riguroso de educación continua y evaluación ayudará a garantizar que los participantes del Juego lo experimenten de la manera en que George Leonard lo pretendió y como los Samurai Game Associates instruyen a los Facilitadores. Estos cambios beneficiarán a todos al garantizar una entrega segura, de alta calidad y consistente del Samurai Game en todo el mundo.

La Leonard Family Trust y Samurai Game Associates reconocen que estos nuevos requisitos de renovación representan un cambio significativo respecto a las políticas anteriores. Creemos firmemente, sin embargo, que estos cambios beneficiarán a todos los participantes del Samurai Game en el mundo y a otros Facilitadores del Samurai Game al garantizar una entrega segura, de alta calidad y consistente del Samurai Game.

El nuevo número mínimo de juegos a entregar reconoce el hecho de que ser un Facilitador efectivo del Samurai Game requiere práctica continua.

Hay mucho que recordar y es fácil olvidar cosas si no se entrega el Juego regularmente. La Leonard Family Trust y Samurai Game Associates están comprometidos a garantizar que todos los Facilitadores certificados estén “actualizados” y estén preparados para entregar un Samurai Game efectivo y seguro en todo momento.

IMPORTANT CHANGES TO THE FACILITATOR AGREEMENT AND CERTIFICATION RENEWAL REQUIREMENTS – PLEASE READ

The new Facilitator Agreement applies to all Facilitators renewing their certification in 2024 and after.  The new Facilitator Agreement has several important changes, including:

Agreement Paragraph 3 – (Certification and renewal requirements)

Agreement Paragraph 5 – (Participant Survey)

Overall – the new Facilitator Agreement has been made easier to navigate with clear headings for each major provision and simplified language.

PHASE-IN PERIOD FOR THE NEW FACILITATOR AGREEMENT. There will be a phase-in period through 2026 for renewing facilitators with certification expiration dates between January 2024 and December 2026. This will provide sufficient time to fulfill the new renewal requirements without losing their certification.

WHAT THIS MEANS: If you renew your Facilitation Agreement before December 31, 2026, you will have a two-year interim certification period during which time you must fulfill the new Renewal Requirements outlined above (and in the new Facilitator Agreement).

Once you fulfill the new renewal requirements, your next certification period will be SEVEN (7) years.

Example: If your certification expires on September 1, 2024, you will sign the new Facilitator Agreement on that date for a period of two years, until August 31, 2026. If you then fulfill the new renewal requirements on June 1, 2026, you will be offered a new Facilitator Agreement with the full seven-year term, commencing June 1, 2026, and expiring on May 31, 2033).

WHY ARE THESE CHANGES HAPPENING?

These changes to the Facilitator Agreement and Renewal Requirements aim to ensure the consistent quality and integrity of the Samurai Game worldwide. With more Facilitators delivering the Game in various settings, it has become increasingly difficult to monitor the consistency and quality of the Game. This more rigorous continuing education and assessment process will help to ensure that participants of the Game experience it as George Leonard intended it and as Samurai Game Associates instructs Facilitators. These changes will benefit everyone by ensuring a safe, high-quality, and consistent delivery of The Samurai Game® worldwide.

The Trust and SGA recognize that these new renewal requirements represent a significant change from past policies.  We firmly believe, however, that these changes will benefit everyone—Samurai Game participants around the world, and other Samurai Game Facilitators—by ensuring a safe, high-quality, and consistent delivery of The Samurai Game®.

The new minimum number of Games to be delivered recognizes the fact that being an effective Facilitator of The Samurai Game® requires ongoing practice.

There is a lot to remember and it’s easy to forget things if you’re not delivering the Game on a regular basis. The Trust and SGA are committed to ensuring that all certified Facilitators are “keeping current” and are prepared to deliver a safe and effective Game at all times.
