Message from Member Services Director, Amy Snider

Sincere thanks to President Rick Concotelli and the Board of Directors for selecting me to work with BAMA! BAMA’s been busy and we’ve got a lot to look forward to!

Thanks to all who attended the Yuengling Brewery tour! We were over capacity and even had a waiting list.

Our 27th Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament at Feather Sound Country Club was a huge success. Many thanks to the sponsors, golfers and volunteers.  

Wednesday, April 25 you’ll find BAMA at the State Fairgrounds at the Florida Building Engineering and Maintenance Show from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and then we’re off to St. Pete College’s Clearwater campus for the Manufacturing Career Fair from 3:00 to 7:00. 11 BAMA members will be represented AND THERE’S ROOM FOR YOUR COMPANY, so please consider signing up for a table and/or stopping by. And, definitely spread the word to job seekers!

April 30 marks Association Administrator Becky Burton’s last day after five years with BAMA. She has supported the association with finesse and we wish her the best! She has kept the BAMA books, membership information, and everything else extremely organized, and her warm personality will be greatly missed.

I’ll be taking over as Member Services Director, and I’m grateful and thrilled about the opportunity. I have extensive experience in supporting non-profit professional and trade associations as well as many years on the air as a radio personality and reporter. I have deep roots in and lots of contacts in the area. I have lived in Palm Harbor for 20 years and raised my family here. I am also passionate about music and volunteer on WMNF Community Radio as host of Thursday Traffic Jam.

Wednesday, May 16 is the BAMA Recycling Fair/Tampa and we’ll do it again in Pinellas County on Thursday, May 17 BAMA Recycling Fair/Pinellas Park. Both events run from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

And finally, we’re really looking forward to our BAMA Annual Scholarship Awards and STEM Dinner on Thursday, June 21. It’s at the Crowne Plaza Westshore this year, we’re excited about the new location.

If we haven’t met, I look forward to working with you!
