Arena directors and head contest judges

Anybody have any idea why some powwows have multiple arena directors sometimes as many as five?

Are head contest judges absolutely necessary? Or can the arena director(s) be responsible for picking qualified judges and lining the contestants up?

Are head contest judges a luxury in today's powwows?

It depends on the powwow size. Small powwows can get away with a single arena director/head judge. Medium powwows need separate arena director and head judge. Large powwows need arena director, dance judge and singing judge; and Mega powwows need two arena directors, two head dance judges and two singing judges.

Because of the complexity and time retraints, modern mega powwows need multiple experienced head staff to run smooth and efficiently.
