    An IFOA page has been added to Facebook! We plan to use this page as an additional communication vehicle for our members and to help recruit new officials.  When the new IFOA site is launched next week the footer of every page will have a link to our Facebook page.

    The IFOA is happy to announce several changes to their web site.  The updates will be launched sometime the week of February 20.  All 2011 members will receive an email with their new login information and renewal instructions when the site is live.  Additional emails will follow with specific information about key changes to the site and actions members need to take to re-subscribe to email communications.

    Key enhancements include:

    • Online payments for new applications and renewals as well as events
    • Automated messages about renewals
    • Self maintenance of profiles for crew administrators
    • Members-only discussion forums to discuss rules, philosophies and review video
    • Member directory

    We have plans for even more enhancements later this year so stay tuned.

    As a member of the IFOA we thought you may be interested in this opportunity.  This is not a sanctioned IFOA event and nobody from IFOA is directly involved.  If you are interested, please contact Francis Meram at francis@indianaflagfootball.com or 317-759-FLAG (3524)

    Indiana Flag Football is looking for IHSAA certified officials to officiate for their youth flag football program throughout the State of Indiana. 

    They currently are the largest Youth Flag Football program in the country and have just expanded to Indiana and are looking to establish a solid crew.  Their existing leagues are in Michigan through Michigan Youth Flag Football. 

    Indiana Flag Football has 8 programs throughout Indiana beginning this spring and are looking for a few assignors to handle their officiating needs.  The cities they will be offering programs this spring are: Noblesville, Fort Wayne, Columbus, Elkhart, Indianapolis.

    There is a delay in generating the renewals for the 2012 IFOA year. We are looking into creating a new web site for the IFOA and utilizing our PayPal account to process membership dues online for both individuals and crews. Until we have that finalized all current members will have their membership extended into 2012. The message on the home page may indicate your membership has expired but that is not the case.

    Stay tuned for more information in January. Thank you for your patience.

    Brian Fedje, IFOA Registrar
