    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
