Registrars: A Big Thank You from the Risk Management Department!!
Cal South has processed over 4000 administrators through the LiveScan program so far this year. Cal South's Risk Management Department wishes to extend a huge thanks to all of the hard-working registrars who helping to ensure that all of these coaches could be out on field before the season stated. For any
clubs that still have any outstanding coaches that need to be approved, please contact Lisa Wolfs at 714.451.1520 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
League Registrar Certification Update
The League Account Management (LAM) department would like to thank all of those dedicated registrars who took the time to complete our recent League Registrar Certification test. With the inauguration of the certification test in the summer of 2007, the response was extremely positive even though a small portion of registrars ran into some unexpected technical glitches. However, with some additional input from registrars and help from the Articulate Engineers,
the test ultimately was very successful! As of today, 240 registrars now fill the official Cal South certified ranks. This is quite an accomplishment and proves that Cal South's registrars are always willing to improve their skills and knowledge base. Again, kudos to all, and good luck to all our freshman registrars!
Update Security Profiles & Contact Info:
Certified Registrars, do you know who has access to your league's information? Secondly, and just as important, has the contact information for your league's current users -- such as League Registrar, League Board Member, etc. - been updated from seasons past? Many occasions necessitate that we peak behind the security wall and take a look at league contact information. Please take a moment and update your league's user profiles, as well
as making sure all contact information is current and valid.
