The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) membership doors have opened to embrace a new group of talented and capable people who wish to advance the society's goals. The so- ciety's bylaws were revised in No- vember 1988 to open the grade of associate members to " . . . persons whose pursuits, attainments, educa- tion or practical experience qualify them to cooperate in the advance- ment of the objectives of the society, but who have not held a position of sufficient responsibility or lack the experience required for the grade of member or affiliate."
Now persons just starting in the marine industry and professions can become members of the society.
They can immediately get in on the edge-of-the future technical infor- mation presented and discussed at society meetings. "Starters" can now begin their professional career with both feet planted firmly in the society.
The change was written to in- clude many others of long experi- ence who may not now qualify as a member of affiliate, such as: • In the marine industry, people who work in finance, contracts, ad- ministrations, purchasing, public relations, construction, and opera- tions. • In laboratories and government offices, those who support the pro- fessionals. • In the small craft industry, sup- port personnel of diverse occupa- tions. • In the offshore industry, opera- tions and similar support person- nel.
A membership brochure and ap- plication form is available from The
Society of Naval Architects and Ma- rine Engineers, 601 Pavonia Ave- nue, Jersey City, N.J. 07306, Attn:
Membership Department; or call (201) 798-4800.
