Round Table Discussion

President's Communications

May 2019

Do you have thoughts about how to make our association better?

Are you curious about what goes into decision making?


May 22 is your opportunity to let your voice be heard.


Contact Joe to RSVP your spot.


Check out these Officiating Camps.  Either for advancement or training, it's always a great idea to invest in yourself.

Dear Fellow Official,


Here is an update on ECBOA happenings and events:


• ECBOA will be holding a “round table” meeting again this year, which is scheduled for Wednesday May 22nd at 7:00 pm at the School District Cafeteria.  The round table is designed to provide our members with the opportunity to ask questions, provide thoughts and opinions, and voice any issues or concerns to the Board regarding our association.  This will be the fourth such event, and your feedback is important to the continued success of our association.  Please RSVP to TeachnBank@aol.com so we can get a head count.


• A listing of basketball officiating camps can be found on our website (ECBOA.org).  Be sure to check these out and call any board member with questions.  Summer camps are a great way to work on your officiating skills, identify areas for improvement, discuss and interpret rules and techniques, and get personal attention from experienced clinicians.


• The Assigner position is open for a 2-year term commencing with the 2019/2020 basketball season.  Interested candidates should submit their name and a resume/qualifications statement to Joe Erwin.  The deadline for submission is May 31st, after which the Board will interview the candidates and make their selection.  The job responsibilities can be found on our website (ECBOA.org) under Governance>Committees>Assignment Guidelines>Assigners Responsibilities.


• Board liaisons to our various committees for the coming season include: Recommendation Committee (Vince Holmes), Assignment Committee (Michael Francois), Training Committee (Mike Smith), Grievance Committee (Lance Bradford), and Evaluation Committee (Joe Erwin).  Alec Ceravolo will head up our recruiting and retention efforts again this season.



Thanks and don't forget the roundtable meeting on May 22nd.



Joe Erwin
