‘Yes’— It’s easy to say, sometimes hard to do. But we need more yeses in officiating. We need people saying yes to becoming an official and that starts with you saying yes to joining us in New Orleans.

What’s The Summit All About?

This year’s Summit theme is “Say Yes to Officiating” and we’re going to concentrate on all aspects of recruiting, retaining, supporting and celebrating officials and officiating. With the officiating shortages around the nation many are facing, this year’s theme is timely and necessary.

Join more than 400 officiating leaders, working officials, administrators, assigners, supervisors, and local association leaders from all sports and all levels of competition for two and a half days of workshops, discussion, analysis and solutions with the best minds on the planet.
