REMINDER: Update your profile

The chapter draws its membership roster–including your contact information–from the profile information listed on the national website. Please check and verify that it’s correct to ensure that we are able to communicate important chapter business to you.

In that same vein, email communication comes from Captain Jensen’s work email address. It is a good practice to “whitelist” his address so those emails are most likely to get through your employer’s firewalls and spam filters. Obviously, we won’t be posting the email address here, but it’s available in the membership directory accessible on the National website: http://FBINAA.org.
