All Board members, coaches (including assistant coaches), team managers and referees over age 18 shall agree to a criminal background check by completing a form allowing NGBA to request information from the Department of Criminal Justice Information Services (DCJIS). Failure to complete the form shall be considered as reason for exclusion from serving as a Board member, coach or referee. The records shall be obtained by an individual designated by the Board (CORI Administrator) and shall be retained in a confidential manner as directed by the DCJIS.
Any individual shall be disqualified as a Board member, coach or referee if he/she has a criminal record that includes an open case or conviction for a violent crime, sexual crime, assault, crime involving abuse, embezzlement, drugs or other such crime judged by the board to be of a nature that would be inappropriate for an NGBA representative. After being informed that his/her participation in NGBA activities will not be permitted, an individual may appeal the decision to the NGBA Board by contacting the president or other officer. The president may appoint a subcommittee of the CORI Administrator, vice president, treasurer, secretary and any other Board member to hear an appeal.
