CLUB MEMBERSHIP RENEWAL FOR 2018

The Club Officers want to thank everyone for their great support this year and we hope to see you all back in 2018. Membership applications are available online through the JOIN TODAY! page of the web site and they can either be mailed to the address on the form or turned in at the first launch in 2018. Just a reminder that SRA dues are based on the calendar year.


CLUB OFFICER ELECTION ANNOUNCEMENT

The Spaceport Rocketry Association, Inc. holds elections for Club Officers at the end of each year. This year's election will be held during the SRA Members Meeting. There have not been any volunteers so all of the current officers have volunteered to remain on for another year; Tim Cubbedge (President), Steve Alban (Vice President), Terry Markovich (Secretary/Treasurer), Gary Dahlke (TRA Prefect) and John Hames (Trustee).

However, SRA is looking for a volunteer, or volunteers, to take over the Secretary/Treasurer responsibilities. If you may be interested please e-mail us for more information.


SRA MEMBERS MEETING

A SRA Members Meeting will be held immediately following the December launch (3:30 - 4:20) in the Palm Bay Library Conference Room. This is a great opportunity to provide feedback and suggestions to your Club Officers.
