Officials are encouraged to become members of a local officials association. Officials who are not members of any local officials association shall pay $20 to the secretary of the local association at each local rules discussion meetings attended. Each secretary will record the attendance of all officials that attend a meeting. An official who is a member of a local officials association is not required to pay a non-member fee in order to receive attendance credit.
Each officials association has an administrative officer – the Secretary. The Secretary is responsible to list meeting dates on myOHSAA, credit official’s meeting attendance on myOHSAA, be an expert on OHSAA administrative requirements and serve as the primary contact with the OHSAA office. The role of the Secretary is to be the “go to” person for officials who need help. Please log onto myOHSAA under the Officiating Directory to find local secretaries in your sport and district.
The District Administrator is the primary resource for local association officers to direct requests for assistance. The DOD will assist the OHSAA office staff with investigations and administrative services. Please log onto myOHSAA under the Officiating Directory to find the DA’s.
