Election season is here for the BFA Board of Directors.  This year the board seats up for election are Southwest, Great Lakes and one At-Large Position.

The recent changes of the organization’s bylaws now allow for electronic voting. The Board has been testing some methods of accomplishing this and we expect to be fully capable to run an election in line with the normal schedule. This will save the BFA a great deal of time and money compared to paper ballots and will hopefully encourage greater participation from the membership (you!) as well. Looks for more details soon!  All members, please review your contact information on the BFA Member Roster to ensure that your email address is correct and up to date before July 8, 2013 to be included in the electronic voting.  
Questions about accessing the roster on this website, please contact your regional director or the BFA office and we will help you gain access easily and quickly.
If you or someone you know would like to be considered for nomination, please contact a member of the following nominating committees.

Efforts are underway to represent and promote our wonderful sport of Hot Air Ballooning at  the EAA Airventure at the end of July.  The BFA will cover the costs of the Ballooning Display area, but we need your help!  One of the greatest parts of ballooning is its people and our passion for lighter than air aviation. We are looking for volunteers to continue the tradition in Oshkosh, that are willing to share their enthusiasm at the BFA Ballooning Display Area.  We are in need of a booth coordinator, booth staff as well as pilots who would like to tether and/or fly at the event.  This years dates are July 29th - August 4th.
Let me know if you are interested in volunteering at one of the greatest Aviation Expositions to promote the great sport of ballooning. Please send an email to kwalter@bfa.net for more information
