The second responsibility of a NASPA director is to perform the duties of a director in order to provide more, not fewer, opportunities for all players to participate, which is why entreating anyone to renounce his or her NASPA membership is unacceptable as it decreases the opportunities available to them to participate in competitive SCRABBLE.
While directors may belong to multiple organizations and play in events for multiple organizations, they may not become
a tournament director of another organization, recruit members for an organization other than NASPA or entreat players to renounce their membership in NASPA.
Any director who does not abide by the policies can have his/her director's certification revoked by NASPA.
