NEW MEMBER NOTES:
The first thing that you do as a new member is contact us thru the
email link on this website with your email address.
It is important for new members to understand that achieving membership
in NEISOA only makes you ELIGIBLE to officiate college games. NEISOA does not
assign any games. You must register with the college assignors and commit your
availability to get games. If you have any questions about that process, please
inquire thru this website

The annual mandatory meeting is held on the first Saturday
in August in even numbered years.It is held at the state level in odd numbered
years, the dates to be set by state reps and listed on the Calendar link
of this website. The site is normally in Central MA in even numbered years,
and in odd numbered years at state sites. The national academy
is an acceptable alternative.
Acceptable reasons for excused absences are listed in the
By-Laws under Article 7,Para 3. Failure to comply will result
in a fine, the dollar amount of which will be equivalent to $150.00
In order to change status from probationary to full member you must
have two assessments,one as a referee in a Dual or DSC from a regular
season game or a NEISOA approved clinic( this must be a minimum of
30 minutes of field time per assessment), and one as an AR in the DSC.
These assessments may now be from HS and/or U-18 or above
USSF games.Must be a NISOA Assessor.
It is your responsibility to schedule and get the assessments into the
hands of your State Representative.
Note: This must be done during the first two years of your
membership. Failure to do so may result in loss of game assignments.
It is expected that new members will recognize that failure to apply
for full status within the first few years will be viewed as a failure
to support the values espoused as a NISOA member and that continued
membership would probably not be in the best interest of either party.
BEFORE YOU PAY ANYONE FOR ANY OF THESE ASSESSMENTS,PLEASE CHECK THRU
THIS WEBSITE OR WITH AN EXECUTIVE BOARD MEMBER AS TO HOW BEST TO GO
ABOUT GETTING THESE ASSESSMENTS.
Annual dues must be paid to your Chapter contact by November 15. The check
is to be made out to the appropriate Chapter contact who will aggregate the
funds and send one check onto the NEISOA Treasurer.
If you know of anyone who is considering attending the NISOA camp at
Elizabethtown in hopes of becoming a collegiate official, please advise
them to inquire, thru this website, about what will be expected of them,
beyond camp, in achieving that goal. We are concerned that there are
individuals coming out of this camp, expecting a badge, without having
the necessary qualifications. They should know before they attend camp,
what is expected, not after.This is hi-lited because it has become a problem
Prospective new members who test in November are reminded that they
have six months in which to finalize all of the required paperwork. If
all paperwork is not completed and in the hands of the NEISOA Secretary
by the Executive Board meeting on the first Sunday in May, the application
process is voided and must begin anew. It is strongly suggested that if
you wish to be considered for assignments in the upcoming year that you
expedite this process. Your name will not be provided to game assignors
until all requirements have been fulfilled. This same policy will apply
to candidates from the Elizabethtown camp in July,who will have
until the December board meeting to complete all requirements.
