Emerald Empire Volleyball Officials (EEVO) is an association of individuals dedicated to providing outstanding service to high schools in Lane County and surrounding areas. Officials follow the rules and regulations prescribed by the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS). EEVO is certified by the Oregon School Activities Association (OSAA) and works in partnership with the Oregon Athletic Officials Association (OAOA).

The Association is managed by an Executive Board of elected working officials. The Executive Board employs a commissioner to manage assignments, act as a liaison to the school Athletic Directors and assist in evaluations.  A Trainer is also employed each season to facilitate preseason training and ongoing training throughout the season.

EEVO officials are independent contractors and not an employee of EEVO. Regular members of the Association must attend all mandatory meetings and complete required training in order to receive assignments.  

The Executive Board consists of the following voting members: President, Vice-President, Recorder, Treasurer, and at least three Board Members at large.  The Commissioner and Trainer are ex-officio members, who are non-voting members at all Executive Board meetings.
