New Provincial Sports Organizations/Municipal Sport Councils/Clubs Associate Membership

Sports Officials Canada (SOC) now offers a bulk registration program for our iMembership Program with lots of bonus features.  We have also initiated a special Associate membership program directed towards Provincial Sport Organizations (PSO) and Municipal Sport Councils (MSC).  This new PSO/MSC Associate membership will provide access to the activities of SOC including the annual Professional Development Conference at a reduced rate.  Currently SOC has three levels of membership:  National Sport Organization (Voting Member), Associate Membership (Non-Voting Member) and two categories of iMembership (Individual Membership) – Basic & Enhanced (includes the SOC "gap" insurance program).

Whether you choose to join as an Associate Member or not, PSOs, Sport Councils, clubs and leagues will now be able to bulk register their individual officials at a prorated discount based on the number you register:

CAAWS Call for Nominations for the Most Influential Women List of 2015!

You can now publicly recognize and honour an influential woman by nominating her to be included on The Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women and Sport and Physical Activity (CAAWS) Most INFLUENTIAL Women List of 2015. Publishing the List of Most Influential Women has become a yearly tradition for CAAWS, which does so to celebrate leaders in sport and physical activity in Canada and on the international stage.  The goal is to further assist in raising the profile of these leaders who make a significant contribution to sport or physical activity. Outstanding Canadians such as Clara Hughes, Christine Sinclair, Anne Merklinger, Karen O’Neill, Melody Davidson and Marion Lay have been named to the CAAWS Most Influential Women List in past years. You can continue the tradition by nominating a leader in your field of sport or physical activity for the 2015 List. Who do you think should be on the CAAWS Most INFLUENTIAL Women List of 2015?
The final list will be compiled by a CAAWS selection panel, from both public nominations and from contributions from knowledgeable sport and physical activity leaders. The panel reviews the submissions and bases its decision on accomplishments and scope of activities in the 2015 calendar year. Deadline for nominations is December 4, 2015. The CAAWS Most Influential Women List for 2015 will be announced in early January 2016.

Open Invitation to Participate in Officials Study

Dear Sports Official,
Referees, umpires, and officials are an essential part of sport competitions and the work you do is greatly appreciated.  You are being invited to participate in a study on the recruitment, retention, and attrition of sports officials.
If you choose to participate, you simply need to click on the link below and complete the online survey which is estimated to take 10-15 minutes. Participants are asked to identify the level of the officiating association in which they have the most interaction and then respond to questions based on that association.  
The research team will take the appropriate steps necessary to maximize confidentiality of all surveys and the anonymity of each respondent.  Your participation in this study is completely voluntary and you may refuse to participate without any consequence.  Having read the above, you understand that submitting a completed survey implies your consent to participate in this research.
Please click on the following link to access the survey:
Feel free to forward this email with the survey link to other officials you may know. Questions regarding this study may be directed to Lynn Ridinger.
Thank you for your time and feedback.
