Ive never been a coordinator, and maybe Im old school, but, if I was a coordinator, and somebody offered me a business card as a personal marketing tool for officiating - unless I asked him for it - Id put it in my Never hire this guy folder.
Do your marketing on the field with hustle, paying attention, and making your presence with your actions.  And, in the classroom by showing interest and scoring well on tests.
Save your money on business cards, and use it for travel, etc., to clinics.

Just me.

Any chance the rules language and Case Book plays could be vetted here before publication?

General Discussion / business cards

With clinic season right around the corner. I just read an article on referee magazine about networking at clinics. They said to have business cards to hand out, so they don't for get your name. Just wondering if  anyone has business cards made up and what information did you put on them.

They would have a meeting of the board of directors, and vote on whether to suspend me or expel me from the association. Their bylaws say that I can't work for a competing organization within a 50 mile radius of Washington, DC.

I get that no one is likely to challenge that, but that's a blatant and severe violation of independent contractor status. If the irs wanted to do so, they'd tag your association as an employer in a heartbeat.

Is DC in better shape than the rest of the country when it comes to officiating numbers? 

I think the first thing I would do is talk to someone to understand why you couldn't get 2/3 vote to keep your membership renewed in your old association.  Also, talk with someone on why you are not getting more games in your current association.  In a time where numbers are decreasing, there is something holding you back and it's important to understand what it is.  Whatever it is could keep you from getting hired by a college coordinator.  Be prepared that you may hear something that is unpleasant to hear.

The other thing I would do is continue to focus on the high school game.  One thing that I have been told many times is the best way to advance to to be the best you can be at your current level

Hmm, that sounds like an association in serious jeopardy of being classified as an employer if they truly restrict opportunities like that. What do they do if you do join a MD or VA association?

Thanks, Ralph. Can you give us a hint as to whether this is a rule change "heavy" or "light" year?
