Wayne reminded members that they can see the SIVOA minutes and information concerning the members on the website – He also suggested that members check to make sure their information on the website is correct.

Jim Gallatin was the SIVOA’s representative to the Officials’ Conference in July. Since he was not present to report on the conference, his report was tabled until the September meeting.

Wayne reminded the members that Sept. 9th is the deadline for both viewing the rules video and taking the Part 1 test. Both are annual requirements for all officials.

Jeff Toenjes reported some discrepancies on the Part 1 test. He wanted to inform the members in case they ran in to this problem.

Barb Maue mentioned the fact that the Level 1 officials at today’s clinic did not get much court time and suggested that the SIVOA might want to offer a clinic just for the Level 1 officials. Lisa Kowalski offered the use of Belle Valley School. It was suggested that a good time for the clinic would be in January, before the Jr. High season.

Chuck Rathert asked if new officials had been contacted concerning today’s clinic. Barb Maue and Diahann Gagen did reach out and notified all the 1-3-year officials in the area. Thanks to Chuck for suggesting this earlier in the summer.
