VSOA Board Meeting Minutes NOVEMBER 2020 > VSOA Board Meeting Minutes 11/16




11/15/16 (South Royalton)

Tom Cook, Dave Barra, Marty Adams, Jessica Christian, Gary Blodgett, Joe Gonillo

Meeting began with Assignors’ reports from Gary and Frank

Discussion involved –

Evaluations and assessments:  2-person and 3-person systems; summer training sessions; more experience for line work; new officials’ report; fitness test and yearly meeting; possible opportunities for back-to-back jv/varsity games may exist where varsity officials working jv game then run lines for varsity games; the idea of varsity players running lines in jv games to help filling sub-varsity games slots (which might also help players’ respect for the job); and other…..

New Officials –

A good number of new referees joined the VSOA this year.  The list includes:

Nicole Adams, Steven Bird, George Gonda, Mark Hyjek, Leah Kotok, Kim Prestridge, Todd Sanderson, Roshi Brooklyn, Rob Donfried, Alex Grist, Faris Halilovic, Ned Halilovic, Seth Hepburn, Justin Hepburn, Lewis Duckworth, and Jeanie Lin.  A note to make it clear to new referees that attendance is required for probationary and 2nd year members at the annual meeting.

We are exploring options with the VPA on stronger recruiting methods for the Association.

The idea of a VSOA social was brought up.  Interesting brainstorming session.  Will be revisited in the spring.

Stipends for interpreter and secretary/treasurer discussed and paid $400/$1500 respectively.
