Join us this December in Oklahoma City, the site of the 2014 NCAA Division I Volleyball Championships and PAVO Officials Convention.
The topics and speakers from past conventions have received rave reviews! It's all about
education and motivation on enhancing your skills as an official. Team building, leadership,
safety & health, the "it" factor, working with coordinators/assignors, being technically
correct.... we'll touch on it all!!
The convention headquarters will be the Skirvin Hilton hotel--$119 room rate. A historically
modern and beautiful facility, the Skirvin is the oldest hotel in the city, renovated to offer
outstanding service and accommodations. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, it's
even believed to be haunted. But while a few NBA teams have reported poor nights sleeps,
officials have never reported being disturbed by the resident ghoul. Just a few blocks away
from the hotel is the AVCA exhibit hall in the Cox Convention Center (4 minute walk), and the
playing site at the Chesapeake Energy Center (10 minute walk).
Located in the business district, downtown OKC's most vibrant districts and attractions,
including the Deep Deuce neighborhood, Myriad Botanical Gardens and Crystal Bridge Tropical
Conservatory, Bricktown, Automobile Alley, and Midtown are all within a reasonable walking
distance. With the average mid-December highs around 50 degrees, the weather is warm
enough to enjoy the outdoors. But if the weather does take a turn for the worse, an
underground tunnel system helps with the walk between facilities and attractions
Become a better official, network with other officials, assignors, coaches, sports marketing and
manufacturing representatives, and enjoy the semi-final and final matches. Sign-up today. Use
