Join us for a day of golf or if you don't play golf, 
come join us for dinner, scholarship awards 
and our guest speaker, Mr. Howie Franklin!

Howie Franklin flew and served with five presidents on Air Force One and is the only person to do so.  Howie tells fascinating and funny insider stories about the presidents and dignitaries, always speaking with the greatest respect.  These wonderful, unique stories appeal to all audiences.  Serving in the US Air Force as the head flight attendant for AF-1 is quite different from how we normally perceive that job title in aviation.  Howie had many important responsibilities dealing with security, critical timetables, unusual requests and specific details.  He was on "hugging" terms with most of the first families and saw them at the best and worst of times. Howie tells about the unique characteristics of the Air Force One planes in addition to passengers.  Retiring from the Air Force, he's Airport Manager for The Little Airport with the Big Heart.

Brian Shul

Major Brian Shul, USAF (Retired) Pilot, Patriot, Photographer and Author will share his unique story.  Towards the end of the Vietnam war, Brian's aircraft was shot down near the Cambodian border.  Unable to eject and sustaining life-threatening injuries, Brian was told he would never fly again.  After months of intensive care, and fifteen major surgeries and physical therapy, he returned to active duty.  He flew as an A-10 airshow demonstration pilot, became a Top Gun Instructor and culminated his career by being selected to fly the Top Secret SR-71 spy plane - the fastest, highest flying jet in the world!  After 20 years and 5,000 hours in fighter jets, Brian retired from the Air Force in 1990.  Now a highly acclaimed author and photographer, Brian has authored five books on flying - all including his own original photography.  Brian's phenomenal comeback story is truly one of triumph over tragedy and offers an inspiring message to everyone that we can always move forward, go farther and succeed.

200 Village Green Circle, Smyrna, GA

This special one-day workshop is designed to provide participants with crucial information needed for your emergency response and family assistance plan. Plan elements that are critical to the success of any response will be covered with an emphasis on HOW important tasks will be accomplished in your plan and not just what has to be done. Actual recent case studies will be used as part of the discussion to illustrate the importance of various elements of a robust ER and Family Assistance Plan. The latest information on Human Services Response will also be covered and will include new video clips from actual families and survivors of accidents and disaster and the latest research on the importance of a company's response to an accident.
