Welcome to the AOA!
Renewal applications were mailed on May 29. If you misplace your renewal application or if you are a new member, click here for a 2015-16 AOA Application. Beginning with the 2013-2014 school year ALL officials were required to undergo a background check. Click here for the Mandatory Background Check. This must be completed in order for you to become a member of the AOA. The background check is valid for five years. If you submitted one during the 2013-2014 school year you do not have to submit one until the 2018-2019 school year.
NEW: The AOA recognizes the need for officials to work contests in Arkansas schools that are enrolled in another states official's organization. The AOA has established guidelines for qualifying as an out of state official. Please click here to see if you qualify: 2015-16 AOA Out of State Membership Application.
At this time, you can also register for the AOA Clinic. Renewing members are able to renew online!

The number of officials placed on probation has increased. In order to maintain or move up in division, you must follow the requirement guidelines. If you were on probation last year and did not complete all requirements, you were dropped in division. If you were placed on probation this year, you must complete all requirements to avoid being dropped in division next year.
