The New York City area is facing a severe shortage of USAC officials. USAC officials play a critical role in every race in the area and without officials those races simply cannot happen. To read more on the background for this issue you can read "The NYC Official Shortage."
Want to be part of the solution? The NY/NJ/PA region is looking for motivated individuals interested in joining the ranks of this elite corp and will be hosting a clinic in Bethlehem, PA on Feb 18, 2018 @ 9am - 3pm ET.
Officiating is a great way to give back to the cycling community...and it's fun! There is no minimum number of races an official is required to work, so even if you only have time to work a handful, it's still worth it.
If you would like to join, have questions, are curious but aren't sure if you want to join, or want to come but can't make it,...or any combination of these, send an email to Liz Marcello at NYSBRAOfficials[at]gmail.com
