Where to start with Juda? He has a hand in everything that happens in Clan Vizsla. From the day-to-day running and administration stuff to wiki work and mentoring new members. It is simply amazing the number of things he gets accomplished on a nearly daily basis.
I will start with something that has become the priority in Vizsla. Recruitment and retention, Juda has developed a system to help us retain new members that include one on one emails and chats at weekly intervals. He instituted weekly emails for competition reminders and revamped how we handled the master-apprentice program, and how we recruit new members. Has it worked? Vizsla at the end of the last Vendetta was the smallest clan in the brotherhood and it had been years since we had someone reach JM4. Vizsla is now the second largest clan and we have had 2 knightings this year as well as some promising candidates moving up the ranks now. His focus and work on this have been nothing short of amazing and this alone is extremely noteworthy to have a clan growing when the brotherhood has been in a steady decline for a while numbers-wise.
While the sheer amount of work Juda has put in on the member retention side of things probably has earned him this AK I would be remiss if I didn't mention his leadership as PCon. The day-to-day things that make a clan function are often overlooked but are essential to having a successful and fun clan. Discord has become where he lives. Constantly on the chat interacting with members. Most mornings start with Juda greeting the clan and end with him still chatting with people when I turn in for the night. These interactions with members are essential to getting people to stay engaged. We all may like the awards and promotions, I love the credits. But we have all stayed here because of the friendships that are primarily built-in chat. Nearly everything he does and the decisions he helps me make are tied back to member experience and retention.
Quite simply put, Vizsla would not be where it is today if Juda was not working so hard to make it successful. His work and continued effort for this clan are nearly unmatched. I am honored to award you this AK for the sheer amount of work you have done in making our clan what it is today. Congratulation Juda
