Officials Division Action Committee - ODAC

All officials who referee in the AZ Region are members of the Officials Division (OD).  The Division is under the leadership of the OD Coordinator (ODC) and the OD Action Committee (ODAC).  Within ODAC are 6 members of the Steering Committee, which retains executive authority for all Division matters. These committees are separate, but inter-related entities, and are responsible for officials training, evaluation, rating advancement and support. The Steering Committee serves in an administrative capacity, whereas the Action Committee assumes an operational role.

The Steering Committee consists of the ODC, Indoor Referee Training Director, Indoor Scorer Training Director, Beach Officials Director, Junior Officials' Development Program (JODP) Director, Competition Assignor, and Head Team Leader. All are voting members. The OD Secretary is a non-voting member of both the Steering and Action Committees.

The Action Committee consists of the Steering Committee, seven (7) Sub-Region Team Leaders, two (2) At-Large committee members, the Junior Clinic Training Specialist and the Junior Clinic Scorer Specialist. Since all officials are assigned geographically to a team, Team Leaders are considered their first-line supervisors. They are responsible for support and communication with their respective teams. Questions or concerns should be directed to the Team Leader as a primary resource. Team Leaders are assigned by the zip code of the official.

Understanding the “line of communication” is vital to the success of our Division. Therefore, all inquiries or issues within the Division should flow in the following manner: 1) Official èTeam Leader, 2) Team Leader è Head Team Leader, 3) Head Team Leader è ODC. When warranted, the ODC may forward the matter to the Steering Committee. Responses or administrative action should be communicated in reverse order.

The Steering Committee meets on the second Monday of the first and last month of the calendar quarter. The full Action Committee meets following the Steering Committee meeting on a quarterly basis, September, December, March, and May. Action Committee meetings are held at the Region Office at 6:45 pm unless otherwise called.
