How to become a member of the DCBACO
We strongly advise and recommend all Umpires/Scorers to become members of the English Cricket Board Officials Association (ECBOA). For Full Members cost of subscription is £30 per year (£32 if paid by cheque). Extensive insurance cover is provided to all fully paid members affording protection whilst umpiring including; Public Liability and there is no exclusion covering professional negligence. Personal Accident cover is also included and members have access to a year round telephone helpline covering legal and taxation questions. You will also have access to all the latest news, hot topics and any law changes direct from the ECBOA as well as a growing range of umpires clothing direct. Becoming a member of the ECBOA automatically means you are eligible to membership of the Durham branch provided that you are resident in, or with appropriate cricketing connections with, the cricketing county of Durham.
Membership of the Association
Due to popular demand the DCBACO (Umpires & Scorers) have changed the regular meeting nights to the third Thursday of every month in the period from September to March, except December when we have our annual dinner. Meetings start at 7.30PM and are held at Burnmoor CC. The meetings, which usually have a guest speaker, are open to all Umpires and Scorers whether they are DCBOA members or not, but we do recommend that all officials join the association.
