The SNAME Gulf Section includes Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and some areas of Florida. Joint section meetings are held throughout the year with our local ASNE sections. We hold meetings along the Gulf Coast, with most meetings either in the Mobile area or the greater New Orleans area. We strive to find topics that are both of interest to our members and pertain to the local industry. If you would like more information, please email us at SNAMEGulfSection@gmail.com, or join us at our next local section event.
