This year, the ASA will have their biennial National Maritime Salvage Conference and Expo September 9th through 12th in Arlington, VA. With WQIS supporting their cause, they will have the backing of over 40 years of experience and knowledge to assist with professionalizing the U.S. marine salvage and firefighting response.
