Fellow State Air Surgeons,

Col Frank Yang, formerly the VA SAS has accepted a new position as the ANG Asst to PACAF/SG so he is no longer a State Air Surgeon. As VP of Society of SAS, he asked me to assume his duties.  His e-mail is reproduced below.

Three immediate tasks are presented:

1 – Please review and approve the attached Bylaws. This organization has not had bylaws previously. You may use the voting button to automatically reply.

2 – Please send nominations (or volunteer) for VP and Secretary/treasurer.

3 – Attached to this e-mail is a spreadsheet with our most up-to date contact information. Please review. Also, if you have a preferred e-mail address or don’t want to get 2-3 copies of same message, please let me know.

Thank you for your attention to these matters.

Col Mike “Diggler” Ricci

VT SAS

FROM COL YANG:

Hi, Folks,

Greetings. Hope everyone has been well.

Since starting the project to update SAS contact roster in July/Aug, I finally heard back from another SAS this month (Nov). I don’t think I will get any more reply. So, including the latest reply from earlier Nov, attached is the “Verified 2015-11” version.

Thanks to all for helping, especially Scott, for updating AK through KS. Scott, All the info you emailed me have been included in the attached “Verified 2015-11” version.

Column O contains “Verified emails 2015-11”.

Column P contains “Verified phones 2015-11”.

These are built on the spreadsheet ANGRC Maj. Ludke emailed me/us in August. All the info on the August spreadsheet were kept as they are.

So, as we move forward, I suggest we use the verified emails where we have them, and use the older contact info on the spreadsheet where we do not have updates — hoping most of the info on the ANGRC August portion of the spreadsheet is still correct.

Way forward, now that we updated contacts:

***** I should step aside:

I found out that I was assigned a new military job, ANG Asst to PACAF/SG, after I started this project to re-energize Soc of SAS. I continued to serve as VA SAS while JFHQ looked for a replacement. Now Lt Col. Eric Merrill has been named VA SAS. So, I feel I am no longer eligible to serve as your president, since I am no longer an SAS. I am happy to continue to help energize this most worthy society and contribute as much as I can.

So, I ask:

***** Bylaws Committee: In alphabetical order: Co’ls. Dodson, Kjos, Pond, Ricci:

Please email your Bylaws draft to all SAS and ask for return vote on the Bylaws AND ask for TWO nominations: one for VP and one for Secretary/Treasurer. Mike should assume Prez as provided by Bylaws.

***** Communications & Meetings Committee: In alphabetical order: Col’s. Jackson, McPherson, Nielsen, Rogers:

Please stand by to engage all if when the need arises for a meeting or email discussion.

Again, Many Thanks to ALL of you for volunteering/agreeing to step forward to re-energize Soc of SAS. Collectively, this Soc should/could be an important conduit for discussion between ANGRC and States/Territories, and even a hotbed for ideas that will benefit the nation.

Aim High!

No One Comes Close!

Fly! Fight! Win!

One Team, One Fight!

    I concur, properly installed WordPress on a server hosting aangfs.com domain should be sufficient for our purposes. This type of site at this level of security offers an excellent balance between security of semi-sensitive info versus availability/usability.

    Fellow State Air Surgeons

    1) It would be a great idea to get together this weekend for a short meeting of those present.

    2) Issues and candidates can be identified and votes taken with those present with voting to remain open for 1 week for those not present to cast their votes by email.

    3) We need a current list of State Air Surgeons with civilian emails and cell phones.

    4) The SAS list needs to be readily available to other State Air Surgeons; may I suggest placing the contact information on the AANGFS web site with password protection? )**

    5) Vice President Yang has done an excellent job; I believe that we would be well served by his election to the position of SAS Society President.

    6) Conrad Caldwell deserves recognition for his service, can we get him a plaque or some sort of recognition?

    **Note: since the State Air Surgeon Society and Alliance of Air National Guard Flight Surgeons are not governmental entities, they are not constrained by the governmental restrictions on the dissemination of Personally Identifiable Information. We need to be reasonable and balance accessibility with security. For example, the document on the AANGFS web site in the SAS section is encrypted and password protected. Not enough protection for nuclear secrets or financial information, but adequate to prevent 99% of bots and telemarketers. Try it out at http://www.aangfs.com/state-air-surgeons/sas-directory-test/

    Will look forward to seeing you all this weekend.

    Thanks,

    Bill
