The Board of Directors and the State Referee Committee have approved a full-time employed position for CNRA State Registrar.
Since 2012 both Mark Bailey and Chris Elliott have been collaborating together functioning as the sole administrators with all things regarding Registration for CNRA. They have both contributed to countless hours each and every day ensuring our individual registration needs are met.
In addition to these basic tasks they have left a significant imprint on an array of tasks that have contributed to the overhaul and continuing developments of CNRA’s Registration, Entry Level Referee Course Registrations and Course Management. They have strengthened CNRA’s personal communications with USSF Offices, and have contributed greatly to developing and testing many of the features we now benefit, since adopting GameOfficials Registration and Course Management System. In addition to these and many more tasks they continuously work with the CNRA Director of Communications to continue to enhance and integrate the CNRA website with GameOfficials with clearer information, policies, procedures and additional tools to make the referee’s registration experience faster,smarter and easier.
California North is the largest state association in the country and boasts a regular 13,000 plus registrations each and every year. With CNRA’s commitment to overhauling and improving its registration procedures it aims to grow that number even further by ensuring fewer lapses of registration renewals, fewer outdated referee information profiles, increase distribution of registration reminders and having a full-time office staff available to answer emails and phone calls.
With this goal in mind and ensuring ongoing maintenance and improvements for all referee registrations, CNRA in July 2013 approved of the hiring of one full-time State Registrar.
The Board and Committee approved of hiring Chris Elliott as the State Registrar due to his prior commitment, organization skills, management of tasks and duties, communication skills with Administrators, the Federation, and Advisory Committees, and his expertise with the CNRA.Gameofficials Registration and Course Management system.
Mark Bailey will also continue to support CNRA and the State Registrar as the Registration Administrator.
CNRA wishes to thank both Mark and Chris for their past and ongoing efforts and contributions.
