Association Dues

This year (October 2010), we had to pay $85 dues in order to belong to our Basketball Association, pay for books and insurance. I am located in small town Virginia.

What are the rest of you paying this year for Association dues? I think ours are way too high, but, I won't know until scores of you reply to this post. Please reply with amount of dues you pay and what state you officiate in. Thanks.

To be licensed in our state (Illinois), it's $45 for the first sport and $15 for each additional sport.

As far as association, I pay $15 and $20 for two different associations.

The Check's In The Mail ...

In our little corner of Connecticut our annual dues are $115.00. In addition to that we also pay 7% of our season's gross earnings.

In CO, the state wide dues are $75 or $95 if late. They will go up to $85/$105 (late) next year. We have association dues as well, I can't remember what they are at the moment though.

$45.
Assignor fee is a sliding scale based on number of games assigned.

Don't like it? Start your own association and charge less.

Here in sunny San Diego its...

$90 for association dues ($110 if late)

$70 for assignor fees ($90 if late)

I don't think our dues are particularly high, but it's all relative to the area you live in I guess.

Here dues are: $115. $50 to the state, $65 to the chapter. We also pay a flat $80 assigning fee which rather severely punishes sub varsity officials or those who can't work as much IMO.

In our GA association it's $90. First year folks pay at the beginning of the season while vets have that amount taken out of their year-end check for the next year.

To register with state: $34
Primary Assn: $50
Secondary Assn: $35
Level 2 Screening: $20 [pro-rated as the screening card is good for 5 yrs]

My previous assn which includes national IAABO dues: $75

You can cover that $85 in less than a week's worth of games. I get a lot of good training for my dues. I get good assignments and get to work with a lot of great officials who have helped me along. I get MORE than my money's worth.

Iowa has two state associations, one for boys and one for girls. I pay $45 for the first sport and $12 for each additional sport for the boys, and $35 plus $10 for each additional sport for the girls. I do boys and girls basketball and boys baseball, so I pay $92 each year.

I belong to a local association but it really isn't required in Iowa, those dues are $15. I don't receive any games from the local association and after about 10 years am considering dropping out of it at this point. Pretty pointless. I don't pay anyone to assign me games; around here the assigners generally negotiate a fee for their services with the conferences they assign. I get many games myself directly from school AD's, particularly in baseball.

I belong to three basketball associations. The main one where I am a board member I only pay $35 dollars for being a multiple sport official in that association. I pay $40 for one and I believe $45 for the other.

Peace
