During my tenure as SRA we tried to standardize the selection of tournament referees, improved the fiscal management of the program, improved the registration/re-registration process and institutionalized the registration process for State grade referees. Annual meetings of the state-wide administrators ensured standardization of procedures across the state. Conflict of interest policies were instituted in an effort to professionalize the program. We also made an effort to promote female referees and to institute a policy of inclusion for the Latino contingent in South Florida.
