Migs?

How are your MIGS determined?
A survey of many local officials' association websites from across the nation yields the fact that all the associations I investigated determined their "Member in Good Standing" status of members based on being current on dues and meetings attended, either rules/mechanics meetings or periodic general meetings.
I'm interested in any of you whose association determines MIGS in any other way. Say, some kinda "points" system where points can be earned not only for meeting attendance, but perhaps for volunteer service or association activity of some kind.
Anybody out there do things different than most? I'd like to learn from you, if so.
PM me if you'd like.

We have these plus...

3. Two of the minimum number are mandatory meetings (rules related).
4. Minimum score on the online exam.

I should note that we have members who are eligible to work games that do not meet all 4...but only MIGS are eligible for varsity and playoff games.

There are additional requirements for playoff games (ie. state clinic), but all MIGS are eligible for varsity assignments.

Migs? Member in good sanding? We have no such thing.

If you don't pay your membership dues, then you're not a member, period.

If you don't attend the local membership meeting, then you pay $5 extra to be a member.

If you don't send the state their fees, then you're still a member but you're not an official.

If you pay your state fees but your clinic attendance, scrimmages and games worked and exam score doesn't meet the minimum state requirements, then you're still a member and an official, you're just not eligible for playoffs.

We have that, and until last year, the additional penalty for paying late was ineligibility for varsity games. Now, I believe, it's a financial penalty that goes up each month.

All you have to do in our area is pay your dues. You will pay penalty fees if you do not pay by a certain date, but you get all the benefits by paying your dues with the state and with the LOA. Games are not assigned through our associations for the most part, so paying dues does not get you to lose anything other than you are not on the roster. And in most associations I belong to that means you get to go the the banquets and other events at a discount if the association holds and year-end banquet or party of some kind.

Peace

Pay the state MSHAA and KSHAA dues (typically included in the yearly exam fee and study booklet fee) and pay dues to the local GKCOA and MoKan. Not sure what they do with the dues money--prolly used to keep enrolled on ArbiterSports website and with the leftove cash, they prolly go out for lunch at morton's steakhouse.
