Presidents Message-Rick Adams 2014 President’s Message As we begin the start of 2014, I am excited and honored to be elected your President. I feel we have an excellent Board of Directors this year and will continue the excellent work of the previous administrations. Also, I want to thank all of the outgoing officers for their service. We have been busy constructing the chapter calendar, restructuring committees and moving forward with the chapter business. I can assure you my focus and the Board of Directors will always be for the good of the chapter. With that said, we need to continue to work on our training both in the rule book and on the field. There are many challenges for the 2014 season. We will be recruiting and training new officials, continuing the progress of looking for centralized meeting locations, pushing for more Hudl training avenues, mentoring, and working diligently on continued training and improvement for all of our officials just to name a few of the upcoming challenges. Realignment of Districts happens again this year. The Board will work hard to market our chapter to our existing schools, as well as pursue new schools for membership to officiate. We need all our members to do more than the minimum established by our chapter. To continue to grow and be the best, we need to all work together to provide timely and professional services to our clients. I wish each and every one of you much success in your football officiating for 2014 and look forward to working with many of you in the future. The Board and I welcome any new ideas to improve our chapter both on and off the field. We strive to be the best football chapter in the state and I’m confident nowhere are there better football officials than in the Dallas Chapter.
