  • Attention All Adult Members of KRVA

    The State of Pennsylvania has passed a law requiring mandatory background screenings for volunteers and employees every three years. While there are still further details regarding the clearances that have not yet been finalized, Southeastern Security Consultants Incorporated (SSCI, our screening company) has been working with us to further understand and help the transition to full required compliance.

    The background screening that is conducted and required by USA Volleyball is considerably more comprehensive than the Pennsylvania State screening but we are still subject to submit to this additional screenings and expense. These are the new additional requirements:

    • • Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearances (CY113)
    • • Pennsylvania Criminal Record Checks (SP4-164)
    • • Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) Criminal
      Background Checks [fingerprinting]

    I have been working with SSCI and USA Volleyball to address this new requirement. The definitions of who must comply and in what manner are somewhat ambiguous. I want to develop clear processes for our membership and define exactly who must comply and by what date. I am hoping that this will be in place by September 1, 2015. Please watch the website and your emails for further information.

    Thank you
    Michelle Carlton
    KRVA Commissioner
