Officials' Convention


August 9 & 10, 2019 - Hilton Harrisburg

For the 25th consecutive year, PIAA will host its Annual Officials' Convention on August 9 & 10, 2019 at the Hilton Hotel in Harrisburg.  This convention provides officials countless opportunities to become better educated in a number of issues involving high school athletics and the sports these officials officiate.

As a result of these educational sessions, PIAA officials are better prepared to serve PIAA member schools and its student athletes.

The culminating banquet on Saturday night will recognize officials who have dedicated at least three decades of service to PIAA, its members schools and their student athletes.
