    Lunch - Gulfstream
    Drink Carts - Cessna
    Cocktail Hour - Falcon
    Dinner - Bombardier & JSSI
    Shirts - Embraer
    Golf Carts - Signature

    The Board has decided to launch a new website that will allow for more interaction between members and the Association.  Please take a look around and explore the many benefits this site has to offer.
    • All events will be added as they are scheduled, with ability to RSVP, see who else is attending, check out what will be discussed and print directions.  They can also be easily added to your Outlook Calendar with the click of your mouse.

    • Each member has the ability to login (in the upper right part of the page) to change any of their contact information or add other members from their company to the Association.

    • There is a new members-only section which can only be accessed by current SFBAA members.  This prevents non-members from viewing and having access to the contact information of each member.

    • There is a message board that can be found under the Members section.  This will allow any member to provide feedback, give suggestions and have general discussions about the organization or business aviation in general.

    • Most importantly, the website has been integrated to accept online forms of payment (credit cards & PayPal), allowing members the ability to view their outstanding invoices and then make payments.  Visit your profile to access this information.

    • Prospective members can also join the Association through a simple form filled out in the Join Us section.
    If you have any questions regarding the website and its uses, or any suggestions on how to improve it, please contact me.

    A Happy New Year to everyone and an apology for getting things started so late this year.

    Last week the SFBAA had a board meeting and invited members interested in running for the board to attend.  We had a nice showing and some new changes have been made.  We did not have multiple people interested in the same position, so no elections were needed.  Before I get into those changes, I would like to take a moment to thank all the previous board members, Scott Ramsden, Hugo Cortes, and Jerry Gemma, for their outstanding work and dedication to the organization.  In particular, there is one board member stepping down who has been here since the inception of the organization and she deserves some additional recognition.

    Tracy Gough is a founding member of the SFBAA and has served numerous rolls within the organization for the last eight years, most recently as Vice President.  Tracy is responsible for the creation of the SFBAA Charity Golf Classic, and over the last 8 years, has been the driving force behind the event.   With her leadership, the Golf Event has raised over $50,000 for scholarships and charities since its inception and has become an event of national recognition.   Tracy has devoted countless hours to the organization and has helped build the organization into what it is today.  It is with regret that we say goodbye to Tracy as a board member, but we wish her nothing but happiness and success in her new position with Shell Oil Eastern Aviation.  Tracy, on behalf of the entire SFBAA, thank you for all you have done and given over the last 8 years.  Our appreciation is greater than words can describe.

    -Jeff Ramsden
    President
