As we enter the holiday season and approach the New Year, I'm reminded how grateful I am to share this hobby with all of you. It's been a wild year, but through it all I feel we've grown as an ARTCC and continue to strive for excellence. We've rolled out rewritten SOP's, numerous controlling and training resources, held several events ranging from headliners like FNO and CalScream to the more casual Norcal Tuesday events, earned an Iron Mic, and even launched our highly anticipated new website which gives us numerous advantages going into the future. Although 2020 hasn't been a great year in many regards, it's certainly been a productive year for vZOA.
As we move into 2021 I believe vZOA is poised for continued success thanks to the dedication of all our members. The knowledge and dedication of our members is truly remarkable, it is what makes this ARTCC and hobby so great. We expect to have more updates to procedures, facility files, and many exciting website enhancements. In fact we're starting the New Year off with a bang, an FNO with ZSE actually. If you haven't already, go check out our "New Year, New FNO" event coming up the evening of January 1, 2021. We'll be hosting OAK and RNO, while ZSE hosts PDX and SEA, for a New Years celebration like no other.
Most importantly, please take some time during this holiday season to enjoy your friends and family, whether virtually or in person.
On behalf of the entire vZOA management team, we wish you a healthy, and happy holiday season!
