Join us in congratulating John Murray, and Jim Hume (posthumously) into the National Officials Hall of Fame!
The induction would normally take place during the Officials Banquet at the Annual Meeting, though we are unsure as yet if the annual meeting will be in-person or virtual.  Determination to be made late September.

The Pacific Association’s Officials Committee is responsible for all aspects of providing certified officials for USATF sanctioned events: recruiting, training, certifying, and scheduling. This group of inspiring and dedicated volunteers work hard to keep the playing field level so the sports of track and field, long distance running and race walking are fair for all. PA Officials have achieved top levels of certification and have traveled the state, the nation and the world to help officiate at top-level championships, always with the “best seat in the house”!
