“The SOCP webcasts we’ve done on the Maritime TV Channel provide
a whole new perspective to an SOCP meeting,” stated Dave Gardy

We look forward to doing it again in Pittsburgh. This is part of our ongoing effort to make our new MaritimeTV channel a community forum, driven by interactive video content relating to the industry.”
