and you know what that means!
Would you like to see a change in direction of the Chapter?
Maybe you would like to be part of or lead that change.
Well, this is your chance. The floor is now open and taking nominations for our 2014 Chapter Officer elections.
If you know somebody that you think would do a good job as a Chapter 582 Officer (President, Vice President, Secretary or Treasurer) nominate them. Oh, you may want to talk with them about this before you get carried away...... but you can do it.
Simply go to the Chapter Events forum or click on the link below and submit their name.
Perhaps you would like to run for office yourself. You can throw your own hat in the ring and give it a go!
This is your opportunity to take part, change or become involved with the chapter leadership.
As nominations are submitted... and hopefully accepted by the candidate, we will keep you advised as to their position and platforms. Then on November 27th we will hold our elections.
Because the exact location and procedure of this years voting has not been finalized, further information about the election will follow.
In the mean time, give your nomination some thought. Then submit his... or her name here.

The Possibility of a Winter Ground School:
Would anyone be interested in organizing and instructing a Private Pilot / Light Sport ground school?
If the Chapter can find a ground school instructor, the thought may be to convene a class, one night a week over the course of the winter that would finish in the Spring, placing the student in position to take their written.
If you, or anyone else you know, may be interested in conducting such a class for beginning pilots, please contact me, Tom Park via the Membership tab above.
Welding Class Follow-Up
We received great response and participation to our last "Introduction to OXY Acetylene gas welding class. As a consequence, there has been interest by others when the class will be offered again.
If you are one of these people that would like to see this introductory class run a second time, please add a posting to the: OXY Acetylene Gas Welding Class forum.
When interest reaches critical mass... We will open registration. We are looking to have this class offered again sometime in the fall.
There is a difference between a "Forum" and a "Blog".
A Forum is a place where you can go and write a comment on a topic or give your opinion. You will find a number of them on our website, all of which are available from the "Forum" tab above. For the most part a Forum is considered more conversational than a Blog.
The format of a Forum is usually light and general banter about a given topic. Someone starts the conversation or forum by throwing out a comment about said topic. Others read the posting and comment back as to their feelings.
A Blog on the other hand, is usually considered more of a "statement" by the author of the Blog. Depending upon how the blog has been set up, will dictate where the reader will be able to comment, or not, as to what has been posted.
You can get a brief synopsis of all the recent Forum activity..
You can subscribe to a "Forum"?
Instead of getting an email every time something changes on the website.... you can limit your email, but still stay in touch with Chapter happenings by only subscribing to the Forums you choose.
Oh, you may not want to follow every forum on the 582 Website... so only subscribe to the ones that interest you. Let's just say you would like to follow the progress on the Chapter Flaire project.... you may even choose to make a comment about the last entry. Simply find the "Flaire Forum" on this page, click on it and magically you will be at the "Flaire Forum" In the upper right hand corner of the page you will see blue text saying, "subscribe", click on the text and you're done. You are in touch wilth all the latest happenings and commentary as updates get posted.
P.S. Don't be afraid..... You can unsubscribe just as easily!
