Website Improvements

Hello, everyone! We are currently working on several improvements to the website. One of which is creating a shortcut for PayPal on the website. This shortcut will allow members of the BSBIA to pay their dues electronically this year.

We are also working on a new feature for the website, a historical section! It has been decided that due to the fantastic history of our bay, a history page will be put into the works! As such, a formal request is being put forward that if you have any old photographs, memories, or even maps, please send them to the web admin at I will be working on getting this page started around the beginning of June.

Please look for these updates soon; the PayPal will be available before the annual BSBIA meeting in June. Thank you! And as always, if you have any photographs you would like to see posted on the website, please forward them on to the web admin at That page will also be updated around the beginning of June.

Thank you!
