To: All NISOA Members
From: Gary W Huber President NISOA
I would like to thank the entire NISOA family for their diligence throughout this year as we faced a pandemic that has affected many of our personal and professional lives.
While many of the college soccer conferences were postponed to Spring 2021, some committed to playing, taking additional precautions to ensure the safety of all participants.
We are very proud of our members for their due diligence in fostering this safe environment for student athletes to accomplish their dreams and goals.
During these challenging times, NISOA has been committed to becoming the industry leader in education by providing weekly online video quizzes and analysis (Stimulus Quiz Initiative), 4-part video series focusing on the NCAA rule changes and continuing education through professional development (Summer Educational Series), physical fitness training program (NISOA FIT), and firsthand development stories from some of the top sports officials in the country (NISOA Fireside Chat).
Over the last six months, the NISOA Executive Board has deliberated on additional actions to help each member during this unprecedented year.
I am proud to announce that NISOA will be issuing a onetime membership dues renewal credit to all its returning members for the upcoming 2021 Season. This credit will be known as the “COVID Credit”.
Referees, Assessors, and Assignors registered for 2020 will be eligible for the $25.00 COVID Credit. New members in 2021 will apply at the normal rates and will not be eligible for the COVID Credit.
As a registered non-profit organization, NISOA is pleased to be able to pass forward organizational savings to its membership from pandemic rebates related to our vendors, partners and the travel restrictions placed upon the organization starting in March.
In order to take advantage of the COVID Credit, registrations must be completed by February 28, 2021.
We are currently working on how NISOA will implement the COVID Credit and will advise all chapters once the changes are in place.
More information to follow in the upcoming month.
Gary W. Huber
