office of President for a term of one year and then serve on the Board in a

The change will go into effect immediately and the Vice President elect will

5.         Moved to present our guest speaker Dwayne Sewell a $50 gift certificate in

our appreciation of his effort to travel to Cincinnati from Dayton to speak at

the rules interpretation meeting of October 25.

6.         Vaughn informed the Board that the New Member class has an enrollment of

14 prospective officials.  The Board was also made aware that Ray Vaughn,

Tom Driggers and Mike Condon would now be the instructors of the class.

There was some concern by a board member that the Association web site

was being utilized to promote new member schools not affiliated with the

Ohio Valley Basketball Officials Association.  This was discussed and the

web site administrator Andy Larkins assured the board this was not the case.

Vaughn acknowledged the fact that he failed to present the administrator with

updated information for this year’s school and the only information published

on the web site was for last year’s school.

  1. The entertainment committee of Larkins and Hickman informed the board that

they have discussed their plan to provide appetizers after the games on

selected Friday nights at two locations on two occasions this season.  They

will hold these gatherings at Blue Book sponsor establishments.  The

membership will be informed of the time and place via the Internet.

  1. Vaughn summarized the awards the association sponsors each year.  The

following is a list of these awards: twenty-year plaques, district tournament

assignment plaques, towels for regional tournament officials, Dan Tehan

plaque.  Vaughn stated that he would also like to see the association present

outgoing board members with referee bags as a token of appreciation for their

service.  Vaughn stated that be has stopped the purchase of district tournament

assignment awards and regional towels until the board approves this

acquisition.  The board moved to continue the purchase of district tournament

assignment awards and curtail the purchase of regional towel awards.  The

board also decided to table any further decisions on awards or gifts until a

budget can be reviewed.

  1. Vaughn asked the board to revisit the dues increase proposed for next year.

Smith informed the board that the association has a treasury, before expenses,

of approximately $18,000 and after expenses of $8,000 to $10,000.  The board

asked Smith to present a three-year running average of all the expenses

incurred.  These averages will be used to set up a budget.  The board will then

be able to identify the exact cash flow needed each year to operate the

association.  This information will then be used to determine what funds are

available to purchase additional awards, gifts to membership and training aids.

The board will also be able to determine if a dues increase is necessary.  This

item and others mentioned above will be discussed at our next board meeting.

  1. Moved to adjourn at 9:25 PM.

Respectfully Submitted,

Ray Vaughn,

Secretary, Ohio Valley Officials Association
