January 1. Renew your GVSOA membership now. It is required of USSF referees in order to be eligible to
receive GVSA game assignments. It is also required of USSF assignors with GVSA
clubs. If your information has not changed, and you do not have to
pay the annual membership fee, send an e-mail to that effect to Jack Wolf.
This is a new way to keep your membership current.
If you are not a GVSOA member, and want to be eligible to receive or assign GVSA games,
go to the "Statement" tab. Complete the GVSOA Membership Application
and determine if you are exempt from paying the annual membership fee

annual membership fee, the check or money order is to be made payable to
"GVSOA" and sent with the membership application to Jack Wolf.
