Open meeting – March 2012
It’s our monthly meeting this Thursday 15 March, 7.45pm as usual at the Madejski Stadium.
This month we have a real treat in store with Ray Olivier, Training & Development Manager for PGMOL as our guest speaker. Anyone who has sat through one of Ray’s sessions at The RA National Conference will know what a great speaker he is and how enjoyable his sessions are. We are very pleased that Ray has managed to fit us into his busy schedule so do make an effort to be there. It will be a good evening.
Ray retired from the National Referees List at the end of Season 2006/07 after nine years as a Football League Referee. He left his post at The FA in September 2010 to take up his new position with the Professional Game Match Officials (PGMOL) where he is responsible for the training and development of elite referees and assistant referees in England. Ray is also an FA Level 4 Licensed Referee Tutor with considerable experience instructing referees in England and overseas.
Ray is bringing the latest DVD on challenges issued by PGMOL and will doubtless have some thoughts on goal-line technology!

I do hope you can make it on Thursday – let’s have a good turn-out for Ray.
See you there.
