The Summit focuses on topics that impact the industry – hard-hitting issues everyone’s talking about. Interactive and thought-provoking discussions drive us to solutions and enlightenment. Designed for leaders and administrators of officiating programs, local association officers, supervisors and coordinators, assigners, conference administrators and sports officials at all levels – from around the country and the world, the Summit delivers three days of intense and highly motivational sessions.

You will meet and network with the widest variety of sports and officiating leaders found anywhere, including influential and well-known pro and college officials.


Anyone who cares deeply about officiating and wants to be a part of the discussions that shape our industry should attend.

Financial support for the NASO Sports Officiating Summit comes from a wide variety of sports and officiating organizations — from pro leagues like the NFL, NHL, MLB and NBA, state athletic and activities associations, gear and uniform retailers, college conferences, national governing bodies, officials associations and many others.

In 2023, 100 different organizations served as Summit Support Organizations (SSO). Their financial support enabled NASO to have the most important and far-reaching event since it began in 1980. An important measure of the success each year is the financial support provided by the key stakeholders within our industry.


NASO firmly believes that any partnership must be a win-win relationship. For that reason, NASO is proud to provide every SSO with significant exposure. Most importantly, every SSO is immediately recognized as a positive supporter of officials throughout the officiating industry.
