The Central Coast Collegiate Baseball Umpires Association (CCCBUA) has taken advantage of NASO’s group membership program. NASO’s group membership plan entitles an association a break in the cost of an annual membership and also benefits such as NASO’s unparalleled supplemental liability insurance coverage, Referee magazine, educational materials, discounts with major officiating suppliers and advocacy on behalf of sports officials.
CCCBUA president and longtime umpire Ted Kovach said that the training materials for the association’s 56 active members offered through NASO is one of the main reasons why the association took advantage of the group membership offer. All of the members focus on umpiring college baseball in the San Jose, Calif., area.
“We want to make sure that everybody gets the same training and opportunities,” said Kovach.
NASO will design a benefit program that fits the needs of an association’s members. Leaders of associations with 25 or more members interested in having their chapter or conference staff join NASO as a group should contact Ken Koester at 262-632-5448, ext. 132.
