Greetings Friends,

It has been a while…

Although we have not had much communication with you, we have been working hard behind the scenes in insuring the SFCA continues to thrive.

We hope you have had a chance to partake in our Live Zoom Calls with local leaders talking about everything hospitality. This past call we were honored to hear from former president and CEO of the GMCVB, William Talbert.

If you did not make the call, good news - all calls are produced by our in-house producer/extraordinaire, Joey Oros, and posted on our YouTube channel for viewing and SoundCloud for the audio portion only.

We encourage you to listen live and participate, or watch us on YouTube or SoundCloud. Don’t forget to subscribe and leave comments. Also, click the bell for future notifications.


Our next Zoom Call is at 10AM on November 17th. We will talk ALL THINGS BASEL on this call. CLICK HERE to Register!

Follow us on Facebook and check out our ALL NEW Residential Communique IN THE KNOW. Make sure you SUBSCRIBE!

Thanks for reading!


A Huge Thank You
to Brian Bean & SFCA Members who coordinated and
donated to the Kristi House for Halloween 2021.

Kristi House is responsible for coordinating child-victims’
legal, medical, and social services needs. Brian and
many SFCA members donated candy and Halloween
gear for children who would otherwise have had neither.

Thank you for making it an extra special Halloween for
those that had nothing, expected nothing, and now
had a fantastic Halloween because of your generosity!
