Date: Thursday, July 20, 2017

As usual, we will not be holding a July Monthly luncheon. We always plan an ASIS Sponsored Field Trip in July, in place of our monthly luncheon. This year, or Program Chair Ken Stewart has arranged for an exciting field trip opportunity at the U.S. Coast Guard Air Station in Clearwater (15100 Rescue Way, Clearwater, FL 33762).

We will meet at the Annex right outside the Air Station for a meet and greet and a short presentation about the Coast Guard at 11:00 AM . Next, we will drive onto the Air Station for a tour of the C-130 and MH-60T hangars and aircraft. Then we will have lunch in the galley provided by our ASIS Chapter (entree, salad bar, drinks and dessert).

There is no charge for this event and you do not have to be an ASIS member.

If you plan on attending, please RSVP to our Program Chair Ken Stewart at along with the requested information. Since this is a military facility, Ken will need the following information in advance:

  • Full Name with Middle Initial
  • Date of Birth
  • US Citizen?
  • Government Issued ID Type? ID
  • Number? ID
  • State of Issue?
  • Any Handicap?

Don’t hesitate to contact Ken at should you have any questions.

We invite our ASIS Florida West Coast Chapter 30 members to ask themselves three questions:        

  • Why does our Chapter exist?
  • Why should anyone want to join and be a member of our Chapter?
  • Why are we the best option for anyone seeking to become the most competent security professional possible?
