  • Our members work at meets throughout the Pacific Association region, and throughout North America.
  • A number of PA officials are chosen each year to work meets of national importance—especially USATF and NCAA championships; and occasionally meets outside the US.
  • We seek individuals who care about these sports and are dedicated to ensuring that track meets are run safely and fairly.
  • We run clinics each year to improve our skills and educate our members.
  • We make our roster available to meet directors within Pacific Association.
  • We advise our members of meets they may wish to work, within PA, in nearby associations, and throughout the nation.
  • Our members receive our newsletter, Turns and Distances, several times a year.
