Flight Safety Foundation is very appreciative of its members’ continued support throughout the years. The Foundation has been setting safety trends and standards and, in essence, changing the conversation of aviation safety for more than 65 years. We do that by being independent and impartial. Our work is global, and your membership dues directly help us to further our common mission as the leading voice of safety for the global aviation community.
With that in mind, the Foundation is making changes to its overall membership structure to better serve current and new members. These improvements and changes will begin in July and continue throughout the year. After that, you will continue to see membership updates and information on the Foundation’s work.
The changes will include: exclusive access to AeroSafety World magazine before public availability, an updated design for the FSF website’s homepage, an enhanced members-only section of the website that will include updates pertaining specifically to each membership category; and new, more specific membership categories with dues amounts that better correlate to each. More value-added benefits will be incorporated in each category. Improvements in the communication of the Foundation’s work and general updates will be seen throughout social networking outlets, email communication and ASW.
Beginning in February 2013, the digital version of each new AeroSafety World issue will be available to FSF members for several months before it is posted on the homepage for all to read and download. ASW is the flagship publication of the Foundation and our most popular member benefit. Members deserve to see it first.
The homepage will change to give a better understanding of everything that the Foundation does, and it will have an easier-to-read format. The members-only section of the website will be divided into tabs by membership category so that members can see which of the Foundation’s projects have both indirect and direct benefits in each category. There will be special articles of interest, white papers, etc. within each category that will discuss useful information for you and your organization. All new members will be able to sign up electronically, and all current members will be able to renew their membership online.
Details on each category including descriptions and dues amounts will be provided at flightsafety.org. The current and new value-added benefits will be spelled out more clearly. Please keep checking the website for updates.
The Foundation will increase communication with its membership through its website and social media outlets such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn, where comments and interaction will be strongly encouraged. General updates and information will continue to flow via ASW and email.
Flight Safety Foundation continues to change the conversation of aviation safety with the end goal being the prevention of accidents and loss of life. Our members are an integral part of that conversation. These changes have been put in place to encourage current and new members to have an active role in that dialogue. Stay tuned.
