From the Chair:

Welcome to the Northern California Section representing The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers in Northern California and Western Nevada.

We strive to provide presentations of interest to our members and guests. Meetings are monthly from September until late Spring jointly with ASNE and occasionally with the Port Engineers at locations varying from San Francisco and Oakland to Vallejo or Sunnyvale. The usual meeting format includes a social hour, dinner (sometimes lunch), presentation and Q&A period. Several meetings each season are field trips to industry landmarks. Our meetings are usually the Second Wednesday of the month unless noted.

We are always in need of volunteers. If you wish to volunteer, please use the "Contact Us" link. If you receive your announcements by mail, please let us know your email address. This will speed up notification and save on section mailing costs.
