RRTC Officer Roles – Vice Chairs
Vice Chair Positions
These positions are appointed by the Chairperson of the Road Running Technical Council. The Chairperson makes the appointment based upon the person’s previous experiences as a Measurer or preferably a Certifier. The Chairperson may also seek a recommendation of others that have served on the Road Running Technical Council. It is most important that a VC has experience with the process of Certification.
The RRTC has two Vice Chairs, who are referred to as Vice Chair East and Vice Chair West.
The Vice Chair East receives Course Certification Documents from the following states’ Regional Certifiers or Final Signatory Measurers:
AL, CT, DE, DC, FL, GA, IL, IN, KY, ME, MD, MA, MI, MS, NH, NJ, NY, NC, OH, PA, PR, RI, SC, TN, VT, VA & WV.

Vice Chair Responsibilities
The Vice Chair shall review all certificates submitted by the respective Regional Certifiers, National Certifiers or Final Signatory Measurers. The VC also will review and co-sign the work of new certifiers until they obtain final signatory status.
The VC checks the Certificate and Map for accuracy. When all is verified the VC forwards a copy to the Registrar with the proper fee so the map can be placed on the USATF web site. The VCs should file their copies for 5 years.
