Hello, thank you for visiting the Student Steering Committee (SSC) website!

Wondering what the SSC is? We are a standing committee of student representatives given the unique opportunity by SNAME to help guide the Society and make it responsive to its younger members. From undergraduate and graduate students to recent graduates, with representatives from around the globe, all are committed to active student involvement within SNAME. The committee is led by five elected student officers, an appointed officer, and the student chair from each Society Student Section. 

We are here to help and support the development of all student sections. On our website, you can find information related to running your student section smoothly in the Student Section Standards (SSS) Guide as well as resources you can share with your members such as employment opportunities, scholarships, and more. Also, for your assistance, we have published a Microsite Guide that you may find useful in building your section's microsite. 

If you have general questions, please feel free to reach out to our chair, Natalie Gadelrab ( NGadelrab2016@my.fit.edu), or if you have microsite questions, you can email me (pavlos.kar@hotmail.com).

On behalf of the SSC,
