Our organization is known as the Greater Portland Volleyball Officials Association (GPVOA) and was established in the early 1970's. The GPVOA is a certified association by the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA). This affiliation allows the members of the association to work high school volleyball matches and provides and affiliation with the "National Federation of State High School Associations" (NFHS).
We provide officials for 76 high schools, 37 middle schools, and line for 7 small colleges in the area. The classification of high schools are broken down as follows: 6A - 40; 5A - 8; 4A - 7; 3A - 8; 2A - 7 and 1A - 7.
The Executive Board of the Association consist of eight (8) regular members who have been elected by popular vote of the membership. The office of Treasurer and the Commissioner are elected every three (3) years. The three Members-at-large are elected for a two (2) year term of office.
Specific duties of each board member are defined by the Association's Constitution and By-Laws. The members-at-large are the direct representatives of all association members and any matter for board consideration should be brought through them.
The Executive Board is responsible for a recruiting and training program for new officials and an in-service training program for experienced officials, coaches and players.
Elections occur annually online and are announced at the last regular meeting in October. Anyone interested in running for one of these positions should contact the Nominating Committee.
