Hello All:

First and foremost, Praying that all are Staying Healthy and Safe during these times.

Now a few quick updates.

As we continue to work on fighting a pandemic, we also continue to work on CFOA business in the background. The finance committee just approved a final budget proposal and the BOD will meet soon to vote on it before proposal to the membership. Yes, we are still working on the Annual Meeting date hopefully in July (depending on state guidelines for COVID-19) and our ability to spread out for social distancing!

In addition, we wanted to advise everyone that for personal reasons Candi (Our Arbiter person) is resigning. We sent an interest Email out earlier to all and received several responses. After consideration, the BOD discussed and appointed Burt Holloway to fill the vacancy.

Burt brings a tool bag with a lot of plusses to the position: Arbiter experience, Official experience (in several sports), Booking experience (in several sports) and has owned and operated his own business. He has spent time with Candi for Training regarding CFOA processes and is also speaking directly with Arbiter to get the latest on any upgrades (new bells and whistles).

Moving forward effective July 1, Burt will be the point person and the Arbiter email will be going to him (Candi will still assist in transition but will no longer hold the credentials).

We are looking at improving our cross checks for booking / confirming / and paying so we minimize confusion and timelines (more on this in the meeting).

Main Point is Burt will be the Arbiter Person “In the know” moving forward.

I (we) want to THANK Candi for her time and expertise in navigating a difficult time and transition from her predecessor to get us to a more stable and positive position for the hand off to Burt.

Until we have a chance to meet again:
Stay Safe, Healthy, and Stay Positive… we will get through this.

In your service,
Allen Cramer
