Record Attendance for SNAME 2009

Thursday, November 05, 2009

Challenging economic conditions didn’t stop a record number of industry professionals from attending The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) 2009 Annual Meeting and Expo. The three-day event (October 21-23) drew more than 1,150 to the Providence, Rhode Island Convention Center.

"In all aspects, the 2009 SNAME Annual Meeting was a resounding success. I would like to express my sincere appreciation to those who attended the meeting, the many SNAME volunteers who organized the technical programs and social events, the meeting sponsors and those who exhibited at our EXPO. We look to build on this success and promise an exciting and stimulating meeting in Seattle/Bellevue in 2010,” said SNAME President Keith Michel.

The SNAME 2010 Annual Meeting and Expo will be held from November 3-5 in Seattle, Washington, with the annual SNAME golf tournament scheduled there for November 2 and the second annual sailing regatta on November 6.

Twelve SNAME members received 50-Year Golden Membership Certificates at the SNAME 2009 closing event, the annual President’s Luncheon on Friday, October 23: Donald L. Blount, Joseph P. Fischer, William H. Garzke, Jr., Harold F. Greiner, Joseph P. Harkrader, Jr., Owen F. Hughes, Petros A. Lalangas, Thomas Lamb, John A. Mercier, John M. Ringelberg, Richard F. Smith and Vordoman H. Van Bibber.
