CVOA members,

Welcome to 2019!!!

We have an exciting year planned.

First, I would like to thank Alice Noll for her years serving as Secretary-Treasurer. 

If you have not browsed our website recently, please take the time at Our executive board is working hard updating information for the coming year. You will find information on regional clinics, study sessions, committee details, rule updates and so much more. All you can think of we hope to have available online. Please let us know if you have suggestions for information to post.

Last year, we asked our membership to get more involved. Thank you to everyone who served on a committee. We had success and challenges within our committees. We will be continuing our committee participation to help drive change within CVOA.

We have two new committees that need your participation, Social Media and Fundraising, not to mention last year’s committees that may be looking for members.

“Social Media” committee is challenged with increasing our visibility through online resources. Follow us on Facebook to see real-time updates as we post news and highlights from the CVOA. We need help configuring our Facebook account making it look more professional. If you have these skills please contact us.

“Fundraising” committee will be exploring ways to assist our membership by expanding our ability to give back to the membership with funds that may be used but not limited to training resources, hospitality and recruitment.

“Recruitment and Retention” committee is in need of members to work with the “Social Media” committee in an effort to increase our referee numbers statewide.

“Training” committee is working hard at providing online resources to assist our state with consistency in the curriculum. One of our biggest online resources we plan on utilizing this year will be the ZOOOM program where we can post videos and training materials for active participation by all members. We are looking into online teaching resources to allow us to reach some of our more remote areas without having to travel to a  meeting.

If you would like to participate in a committee, please visit our website at and select a committee link to learn how to get more involved.

I encourage every member to become more involved at the local or state level. You do not have to be an area director to give back. 

I look forward to serving you this coming year.


Bruce Bird

CVOA President

We are “CVOA”!!!
