Dear Fellow Official,


Here is an update on ECBOA happenings and events:


• I hope everyone is staying safe and healthy.  Looking forward to the day when we can hit the court and start officiating some games.


• The Board of Directors has met three times (via Zoom) in April, and we have been taking a close look at our various policies and guidelines in an effort to make improvements to how we operate our association.  Changes to our evaluation policy and grievance policy were recently approved, and these will be posted on our website (ECBOA.org).


• For the 2020-2021 season the Board liaisons to our various committees will be Mike Smith – Training Committee; Vince Holmes – Recommendation Committee; Lance Bradford – Grievance Committee; Alec Ceravolo – Recruiting and Retention Committee; Joe Erwin – Evaluation Committee, and Michael Francois – Assignment Committee.  Also, Jose Feliberty will assist with the Evaluation Committee, Alec will assist with the Assignment Committee, and Jim Marzullo will assist with the Evaluation and Recommendation Committees.


• We do not have any update on off-season camps at this time; however, as information becomes available we will update the website.


• Be sure to check out a feature article on our Jaylen Sanders of Next Level Mentoring.  We have a link to the article on our website.  Congratulations Jaylen.


Thanks and stay healthy


Joe Erwin
