Badge Communications

For your convenience, courtesy reminders are emailed for renewals. However, please remember it is your responsibility to renew your badge if you wish to maintain your access to the Airport. Courtesy reminders are emailed in order to reduce costs for Airport users. Badging costs due to TSA requirements encompass background checks, materials, training, equipment, and countless administrative hours. Current badging fees do not cover the minimum costs related to badging. Airport users can help keep fees down by ensuring compliance with badging requirements.

If you miss the deadline for renewal, which is also printed on the face of your badge, your badge will be turned off on the expiration date. After a one (1) month grace period you will need to restart the application process. *UPDATE* Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the grace period has been extended for 2020 to (2) months; which is the end of December for 2020. Thank you for your assistance to keep the Airport compliant with Federal requirements!
