For Immediate Release

August 1, 2013 – Continuing its goal of building a strong and influential organization, MRDA is offering its first officiating clinic. The clinic will take place August 15th and 16th at the JFK Arena in Rome, New York.

  • Kilty Conscience will conduct a session on mediation and conflict resolution in officiating.
