IAABO - moving to another state

I am moving to Detroit for a new job. Does any have any information of a IABBO board in the Detroit area or any other high school basketball board? I have been officiating high school boys and girls games for 6 years.

Michigan High School Athletic Association ...

There are local IAABO boards in Colorado, Connecticut, New York, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Vermont, New Hampshire, Virginia, South Carolina, Rhode Island, Arizona, Delaware, Alaska, California, Georgia, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, Washington, District of Columbia, British Columbia, Ontario, Guam, Japan, and Korea.

None in Michigan.

Check with the Michigan High School Athletic Association:

This are the two associations that cover Detroit. If you click on Wayne County under "County Listings for All Zones", you will find associations that cover the suburbs. This should give you a good place to start.

As far as IAABO, you can continue as an individual member by contacting the IAABO office. You will still be able to receive IAABO training materials and remain in good standing if you happen to move back to somewhere with an IAABO presence.

MaroonX:

There are no IAABO Boards in the State of Michigan and IAABO membership is not required. Billy has given you the specific page for Officials on the MichiganHSAA website: MHSAA.com.

The New Official Registration Form can be completed: a) online:
https://my.mhsaa.com/Officials/Begin...on/NewOff/true or b) mail-in: https://my.mhsaa.com/Portals/0/Docum...erj2o0OQ%3d%3d

Since you are transferring from another State there is a Transfer Official Information form which must be completed which can be found on https://www.mhsaa.com/officials/offi...n-information; this is a Word Document which part of is completed by you and part which must be completed the MarylandPSSAA. This form may or may not be of any use to you. In order for the MichiganHSAA to grant you Transfer Status you must already have the highest level officiating status in the MarylandPSSAA; you can find more information at the bottom of Page 8 of the 2022-23 MichiganHSAA Officials Guidebook at https://www.mhsaa.com/sites/default/...6/offguide.pdf.

If you do not have an Arbiter account be prepared to get one; if you do, that is the email which you should use in your registration application. All assignments are done by Arbiter in the MichiganHSAA.

I do not know what shirts are worn in the MarylandPSSAA but be prepared to buy new shirts and a new jacket.

As a long time member of IAABO I second ilyazhito in keeping your IAABO Membership; in fact, I would advise that you always maintain IAABO Membership even in non-IAABO States for reasons on which I have "pontificated" many times here in the Forum, LOL, but also for the IAABO Insurance and if you are not a NASO Member I would recommend becoming a NASO Member of the same reasons I recommend being an IAABO Member. I do not think that the MichiganHSAA is a 100% NFIOA Membership State like the OhioHSAA is.

Finally, tell Al Battista I said hello, we go way back.

As others already said, there's no IABBO in Michigan. The closest you'll get is people who moved to Michigan who may still wear items with IABBO logo from their previous state.

Depending on where in the Detroit Area you'll be moving, there are a few options such as the MDAO, SMOA, UFO, and others that may be a more convenient commute depending on where you live/work.

Check https://my.mhsaa.com/Officials/Local...d-Associations and select Zone 3

Although the MHSAA lists locations with each association, I believe that is their "base" location and not necessarily where meetings are held. As an example, the Metro Detroit Athletic Officials is listed as being in Redford, but most meetings are in Birmingham with some conducted via Zoom. the correct URL is also http://metrodetroitathleticofficials.com/

Finally, I also believe that MHSAA registration now includes membership in NASO as part of the revised fee structure.
