Marine Surveyors To Hold 19th Marine Conference
In New York In October
Joseph V. Sheridan, chairman, announced that The National As- sociation of Marine Surveyors (NAMS) will hold their 19th An- nual Marine Conference at the
Hotel Americana in New York
City on Thursday, Friday and
Saturday October 20, 21 and 22, 1977.
The three-day seminar on ma- rine surveying and allied topics will be held in conjunction with a meeting of the membership on the morning of Saturday, Octo- ber 22.
This will mark a new phase in the NAMS series of conferences.
In the past, they were one-day meetings with expert speakers on marine topics that cover the ma- rine survey profession. This year's innovation includes, that in addi- tion to the speakers, the second day will consist of several round- table meetings where attendees will be able to select from among the topics on the agenda that are of most interest to them. Follow- ing brief presentations from the moderator and the panel of speak- ers, there will be an open meeting for questions from the floor.
NAMS is the professional asso- ciation of marine surveyors, with members located throughout the
United States, Canada, Central
America, South America and Eu- rope.
Guests at the Annual Marine
Conference are drawn from all facets of the marine and insur- ance industry and Government.
Any person interested in at- tending should write to NAMS-
Marine Conference, P.O. Box 55,
New York, N.Y. 10038.

Colorful charts and diagrams are easy to follow and informative.
