President's Message: January 2018

Hello, PATSA! I hope you are enjoying your holidays, and are preparing for the upcoming season of TSA conferences.


As we begin the new year, Regional Conferences are closing in, meaning we must focus on executing the visions, designs, and goals we set for our teams at the beginning of the year. Whether building a balsa glider or developing a documentation, it’s critical to start this process as early as possible to ensure that the quality of your work does not deteriorate due to time constraints. Furthermore, make sure to check the READ-READ-READ document of your Regional Conference to be informed of any rules clarifications or region-specific regulations.


At your Regional Conference, feel free to speak to a State Officer about the upcoming 40th Annual State Conference, for the State Officer Team has planned numerous initiatives that will make this conference your most memorable one yet. Moreover, make sure to check PATSA’s website and various social media accounts for information regarding Q&A sessions with the State Officer Team via Google Hangouts later this year.


To stay updated with PA-TSA’s various functions and opportunities, be sure to subscribe to PATSA’s email list and follow our social media accounts:
