CEJBO MEETING DATES 2018 - 2019 Basketball Season


Fellow Officials:


The 2018/19 season “begins” next week with the first of seven opportunities to attend an NJSIAA Interpretation meeting – Brick Memorial High School @ 7PM. As the CEJBO Membership Chairperson I would like to remind you of the attendance requirements for both CEJBO and the NJSIAA.



    • Members are required to attend one NJSIAA sanctioned interpretation meeting annually if you are going to officiate any level of basketball governed by the NJSIAA.  


This year, the NJSIAA has scheduled seven opportunities to meet this requirement. The schedule and location of meetings is attached. 



    • Members are required to attend one of the scheduled general education meetings and the general membership meeting in December, annually.

      • The E Board has scheduled the three meetings for:

        • October 16th, November 20th and Sunday, December 9th.

      • The CEJBO meetings on October 16th and November 20th, 7PM start will be held at:


Diocese of Metuchen Center


146 Metlars Lane


Piscataway, NJ




The Meeting on December 9th., start at 8:30 AM will be held at:


Sommerville Elks


375 Union Avenue


Bridgewater, NJ.




With respect to the NJSIAA meetings:


When you attend the NJSIAA meeting of your choice, NJSIAA representatives will have a sign in sheet for CEJBO (and other organization’s members). Please be sure to sign in on the CEJBO sheet.


These attendance sheets will be made available to the CEJBO Membership Chairperson and effectively becomes  

THE record of attendance at the meeting.


Additionally, NJSIAA representatives will distribute “proof of attendance “memos at the end of each session. (sample attached)


Please make sure you obtain one and keep it in a safe place for future presentation to the CEJBO Membership Committee should attendance at a meeting be in doubt. 


Please make sure you stay to conclusion of the meeting to obtain your “proof of attendance” and complete the sign in process.
