NISOA Online Training Now Available

We received the following message from NISOA President, Joe Miller:

I am pleased to announce that the contracts with the NCAA and Arbitersports have been finalized.  A new web site has been launched by Arbitersports that includes on-line training for all NISOA members.  This is being done with no additional cost to the membership.  The dues currently being paid will cover the costs of the contract agreement.  Approximately 4,000 of our members have already received an invitation to the site.  These are the individuals that have up-to-date email addresses within our records.  Many were obtained from the recent request that was sent to all chapter contacts.  Unfortunately only approximately 35% of the chapters responded.

Please notify all your members that the new web site is now operating.  They should log into and register so they can begin benefiting from the training that will be posted.
