SMC is a big GO! A message from the SMC Chairman

By Kathy Hartness posted 09-13-2017 02:40 PM


SMC 2017 is on: We'll see you in Houston.

Hurricane Harvey might have brought rain and destruction to the region, but the people of Houston are resilient and are already picking up the pieces. We've spoken with Houston city officials, and we've verified the venue and the airports as we watch the recovery occurring. 

We're pleased that our host venue, the Hyatt Regency Houston, received no damage at all. So, my dear colleagues, things are moving forward rapidly, as planned. 

We have on offer the LARGEST PROGRAM in SNAME's history with 5 breakfasts, 13 panels, technical courses, workshops, young professional and student events, and scores of technical papers on a broad range of maritime and offshore topics, from cybersecurity to the recent upgrading of the Panama Canal. 

You will not want to miss this program! Go to to register.

It's going to be great!


Ed Stokes

SMC Chairman
