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 procedure for registering as an official to be considered for assignments for ISOAB games is as follows. Go to www.isoab.com where you will find a link for new registrations. Mr Alex Ivahnenko will contact you for availability. This is for Division 1 games. Also Joe Machnik ( firstname.lastname@example.org)

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 December 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.
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.
