    The Hydrographic Society of America Board of Directors approved a $10 dues increase for Individual memberships associated to National. Effective January 1, 2016, the annual dues will increase to $35.

    Your elected Board of Directors gave careful and thoughtful consideration to the issue of increasing the National Individual membership in these financially difficult times. This action was taken in response to some confusion among members. Previously National Individual Membership was $25. This created confusion among members because Chapter associated Membership is $35. Adding the $10 increase to National associated dues will clear up any confusion we have in the future.

    The membership dues will not change for Corporate, Retired and Student Membership.

    If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the administrative assistant at admin@thsoa.org.

    Nominations can now be made for the upcoming THSOA elections. We are looking for nominations to fill the following offices for a two-year term:
    • President
    • Treasurer
    Both the person making the nomination and the nominee must be current members of THSOA. The Nominating Committee will contact each nominee to verify they accept the nomination.


    Nominations will be accepted through 15 July 2015. We will then allow nominees to draft a statement that will be placed on the THSOA web site between 15 July and 15 August. If there is more than one nomination for any position, an on-line election will conducted for those positions from 15 August thru 15 September. If there is only one nominee for a position, they will be elected without a vote.


    I hope that all of you will consider stepping forward and helping the Society move forward.


    Best regards,


    Paul Cooper
    President THSOA

    World Dredging Congresses (WODCONs) are organized once every three years by WODA, the World Organization of Dredging Associations. First organized in 1967 in New York and held throughout the world since, this series of congresses has become the most important event for dredging professionals worldwide. WODCONs, the only worldwide events dedicated exclusively to dredging and maritime construction, provide a unique platform for researchers and practitioners from industry, academia and governments to meet and discuss dredging.

    WODCON XXI will showcase some 120 technical papers over three days covering all aspects of dredging and maritime construction. All WODCON XXI papers will be peer reviewed and provide up to date, relevant and high quality information. The congress will also feature a technical exhibition and technical visits. These technical program elements will ensure a complete learning process, while various social events will allow participants to meet fellow professionals from all over the world in a friendly and inspiring atmosphere.

    WHO WILL ATTEND?

    WODCON XXI will bring together expert representatives of manufacturers, universities, research institutes, consultants, public authorities and contractors working in the dredging, navigation, coastal and inland flood protection, deep-sea mining, offshore wind energy, oil and gas production fields and providers of a broad range of services such as brokers, insurers, financiers, lawyers, and many more.

    CALL FOR PAPERS

    Interested authors are invited to submit one page abstracts (less than 400 words).

The Technical Papers Committee will review all abstracts and notify authors of acceptance and provide final manuscript instructions for production of the WODCON proceedings on CD’s.
