To make it easier to recognize the accounts of the USRowing Referees Corps, HereNow has instituted a program to show a special badge on the profiles of USRowing referees. When you see this badge, you have certainty that the person you are interacting with is a USRowing referee.
To get your official USRowing Referee badge, create an account in the HereNow system and then ask the timing lead at any event timed by HereNow for the badge. You will need a photo ID and the email address of the account to which you want to add the badge. Your badge will be available upon next login.
