EAST LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan High School
Athletic Association begins its 13th year of conducting an annual
series of regional in-service workshops for athletic directors
The series of nine workshops begins August 5, and one session
is intended specifically for first-time athletic directors and
their secretaries. The workshops will be conducted in various
parts of the state. The one-day seminars will cover many of the
basic responsibilities of a school athletic director, from working
with game contracts, facility scheduling, and budgets; to hiring
game officials and on-going relations with the public and the
media. Athletic department secretaries and booster club officers
are also encouraged to attend at all sites.
Each program will include presentations on recent actions by
the MHSAA Representative Council, Association regulations, round-table
discussions and the presentation by a local athletic administrator.
The programs begin at 8:30 a.m., and eight of the sites will
conclude their day with lunch at 12:30 p.m. The site offering
the program for new athletic directors will run into the afternoon.
Each year, approximately one-third of the MHSAA's 729 member
high schools are represented at these workshops.
Registration is $15 and includes lunch and an in-service manual.

The MHSAA is a private, not-for-profit corporation of voluntary
membership by over 1,300 public and private senior high schools
and junior high/middle schools which exists to develop common
rules for athletic eligibility and competition. No government
funds or tax dollars support the MHSAA, which was the first such
association nationally to not accept membership dues or tournament
entry fees from schools. Member schools which enforce these rules
are permitted to participate in MHSAA tournaments conducted in
12 sports for boys and 12 sports for girls which attract approximately
1.3 million spectators each year.
