The Sports Officiating Summit is the only event of its kind, designed exclusively for officiating leaders and those who administer officiating programs.

The Summit attracts representatives from all major professional leagues, collegiate, high school and youth levels. This premier event is the meeting place to discuss the critical issues impacting officiating today and the innovations of tomorrow – to continuously improve the overall game experience.

Officials and officiating leaders have attended NASO Summits for over 30 years. The first Summit was held in Chicago in June 1981, and NASO has held a Summit every year since with the exception of 1996 and 1999.
