Interpreter's Stipend?

Do most boards provide a stipend to the Interpreter? Our board does and I believe it is a valid expense. The interpreter is expected to answer questions and provide rulings throughout the year, run our new candidate class, which means he is out for 8 to 10 nights when he could be home or working games, attend the IAABO fall meeting (yes we reimburse his expenses) as well as attend all of the Board of Director's meetings and member meetings to provide additional training. One of our members seemed to think it was wrong to provide a stipend for the extra work required of this position. Thoughts?

Sounds like a reasonable expenditure to me.

Little Corner ...

My local board's Interpreter Compensation: $750.00

Same duties as mentioned in Jfpdi's post above.

Anyone who puts that kind of time in deserves some compensation.
Training the rookies is a big deal and takes real effort to do it right.
That task alone is worth several hundred bucks for the time invested in prep and teaching.

I do it without any compensation. I see it as me giving back to something that has given me so much. Plus I enjoy it.

Sure, it's easy to volunteer someone else. Has that dissenting member offered to take on the responsibilities--and do so for free?

Usually, folks that come to our meetings are volunteers. Now if we have a guest speaker or someone that is doing something in their official state policy, we do give them something for that time, but it is usually one night. This is about the culture of the place I would suggest. If you pay people for their time, they are willing to do their job. I see no issues with paying someone.

Peace

I should also point out that the rules interpreter is an elected position of my local IAABO board, elected by a majority vote of the membership at our annual meeting (last meeting of the season) for a one year term. The rules interpreter cannot jointly be the secretary/treasurer, assignment commissioner, or the assistant assignment commissioner. Such candidates for the rules interpreter must withdraw from such elected or appointed positions when elected.

In thirty-eight years there has never been more than one candidate for the rules interpreter position, and we’ve only had two rules interpreters (both have been outstanding) since I became an active member.

In the Great State of Ohio, it is usually only the Secretary that gets a stipend. Maybe some large associations may provide a stipend to their interpreters but the ten years that I was rules interpreter and instructional chairman I did the job out of the kindness of my heart.

The kindness of your heart doesn't pay that bill at Kinkos

Our local association, the interpreters just tag along with the Secretrary up to the meeting. Not much else that we are required to do that would really require any expense. I guess I could go observe some local games on my off days(two of the three county HS are within 8 minutes of the house) since now apparently we now have votes for tournament officials.

$1,000 but everything is higher priced on the Left Coast

Give that guy girls JV and middle school. Was an IAABO interpreter, I received a $200 stipend
and no dues. Board picked up expenses to
IAABO convention. I enjoyed it and it made me
a better official. Guys like that are detrimental to the board....
