Arbiter and the Directory

It is crucial that you sign in and update your personal information and schedule on the Arbiter. There will be NO MEMBERSHIP DIRECTORY provided by the Association. All of that information is available to you on Arbiter. Assignors are using the Arbiter virtually exclusively now, as the leagues are requiring it. The NJSIAA will also be using it for State Tournament assignments. If you need help the officials help presentation, it is available below:

As per the 2012-2013 NJSIAA Handbook, Minimum Requirements for Registration of Officials (page 2) " A member shall be required to attend a minimum of three (3) meetings annually." This requires all volleyball officials to attend three (3) meetings. As per our Constitution we are still bound by: "Each active member must attend an interpretation meeting and one mechanics meeting Said interpretation and mechanics meetings must be one of the first four (3) meetings held prior to the start of the Fall season.

Attendance Reminders 

All active members must attend at least one Rules and one Mechanics meeting before the start of the fall season. That means you must attend one of the threemeetings held in August (21, 26,) or September (3). 

Of course, you must still attend three (3), but the meetings on August 26 and September 3 count as two meetings if you stay for both the Int. and Mechanics as well as the meeting on March 5, 2015.. Any member with attendance issues should submit a letter or email to the Attendance Chair, WALT RUSAK at waltr23@aol.com within the time frame outlined in the Constitution. Letters of excuse must be submitted 15 days after the missed meeting. The letters will be reviewed by the Executive Committee who will make the final decision. Members on probation must attend FOUR meetings, two of which are fulfilled by the above requirements.
