2015 Chairman’s Message
The 2015-2016 SNAME year has gotten off to a great start, and we
are well on our way to another successful year. Chesapeake Section
is doing great things in 2015, and I hope you are taking full advantage of all
that SNAME has to offer:
technical meetings on a regular basis
exciting Young Professionals group that meets regularly for social, educational,
and volunteer activities
information regarding SNAME and other events of interest
to address interesting technical topics as part of Panels or Committees in
your area of expertise
to data and resources via SNAME’s new website, and more!
As the year progresses you will see us experiment with different
meeting locations in a continuing effort to provide value to our
members. Prices are going up at our current venues and we are
looking for more fiscally sensible solutions. Your suggestions are always
welcome, and we appreciate your feedback when we try somewhere new. Please
send ideas to Mr. Andy Lachtman, along with your thanks for his hard
work as Meetings Chair. Please send presentation topic ideas to Mr.
Ted Dickenson and thank him for his support as Technical Program Chair.
If you would like to volunteer, contact me or an Executive
Committee member. We are happy to help
you find your niche at SNAME – whether here at the Chesapeake Section or
Whether you are a member of the Executive Committee, participate
in a Panel or Committee, plan or attend symposia and conferences, attend local
meetings, or participate in other ways, your efforts are what makes SNAME a
success. Thank you. And at
whatever level you participate, I urge you to try something new and see how
SNAME can benefit you and how you can contribute to the SNAME community.
If you or your organization would like to support the Chesapeake
Section, our Young Professionals, and our Student Sections with a financial
gift, please contact me at your convenience.
SNAME is a 501(c)3 organization which allows your donations to be tax
