Starting a Museum # 15
Things are shaping up for 2014 for the museum. We are negotiating a land lease deal with Boundary Bay Airport and they have offered us a piece of land that will give us good exposure.

It is on the corner of Athabasca and Montreal Street and will be seen by everybody entering the airport terminal parking or the gate to the airport.
We are also pricing out a 6000sq.ft. building and here is a concept photo of it
We will have more about this in our next blog.
Our Education Committee has added a member from the UBC and we are slowly developing education programs starting with the Middle Schools and will go from there to High Schools and then the lower grades.
Our Building Committee is looking after the building proposal and are looking for a Architectural firm who will do drawings for us at a "museum" price.
We are ending our Founding memberships on March 1st 2014 and will go to a standard membership instead. The cost will still be $ 25.00/year. We are also adding a Student rate for $ 10.00/year. If you want to become a founding member you can sign up on our website before March 1. The founding membership will be treated to special events, discounts etc. when the museum opens and you will be a founding member for as long as you keep your membership current.
We have several organizations who's members are very interested in volunteering. The amount of volunteers we need at the moment is small and focused on developing the museum. When we open next year we will have a need for 'on-site" volunteers and we will start that process beginning of next year. By then we should also have some volunteer job descriptions ready.
We are always looking for artifacts, photos and anything connected to aviation simulation. If you have anything for us, contact us through the website.
