Sept. 2nd., 9th. and 23rd., Oct. 7th. 14th. and Make up meeting the 28th. The Banquet is scheduled Nov. 11th.
Locations are yet to be determined as according to Obar
there may be problems getting
Obar presented the financial report. It was agreed by all, there are enough funds that the dues need not be raised even with a $2:00 increase in the instructional materials.
Fred discussed the topic of moving crew members.
This opened up the discussions of:
· How members are chosen for crew assignments.
· The ratings as a merit system for picking crews.
· The observations and evaluation of officials.
· Electronic evaluations vs the current handwritten ratings.
Some of the feedback and decisions were that:
Fred highlighted the fact that we need to get out and take part in observing officials working lower division games. Steve also reiterated that this could provide feedback as to topics to be emphasized for instruction.
A discussion took place as to the capabilities of Arbiter in communicating with the membership, the updating of membership lists, and communicating with school personnel, etc. Kirk stated that he felt the Arbiter should be used primarily for assigning vs instructional. He also noted that attachments could not be forwarded on Arbiter. Jeff felt that the website could perform much of the needs but access to Arbiter would be very helpful for several things i.e. members e-mail addresses, game evaluations etc. Fred, Jeff and Kirk agreed to work out those situations.
The last topic of crews was the playoff/finals rotation. With additional crews the current rotation for finals would mean an eight year rotation. Steve stated that the CIF SS only wants the unit’s “best” officials on final games. After discussion and looking at future crew rotations it was decided that the Board of Directors and Instructional Staff will set a 5 year rotation with the top 25 officials. This would be decided at the annual ratings meeting and would be revisited and decided upon for any needed changes each year.
