    Earlier this year, Rafael Ponce was elected President-Elect with the expectation that he would take over as President on January 1, 2022. With Rick's passing last month, Rafael was voted by the board to start his duties early and has graciously stepped into the role of President effective June 1, 2021.

    Good luck in your new role, Rafael!

    Rafael's bio:

    Graduated from the Mexican Naval Academy as Naval Sciences Engineer; spent 8 years on board Mexican Navy ships (Oceanic Patrol Ships, Destroyers, Dredging Ship and  a Hydrographic Ship) at different positions (Operations Officer, Navigation Officer, Weapons Officer, ASW Officer, Chief Engineering, and Commanding Officer). I became a Category B and later Category A Hydrographer with a Master of Science in Hydrography at the University of Southern Mississippi. I was commissioned at the Mexican Hydrographic Office where I spent the last 15 years of my naval career until my voluntary retirement in 2007. Since then, I work at Esri the GIS company, currently as Principal Maritime Consultant.

    As a professional mariner and hydrographer, I’m passionate about the oceans and progress of our world through hydrography. Supporting people and new colleagues in the field, as well as learning from all, are my motivations to keep vibrant our hydrographic society.

    Services for RDML Brennan have been announced. The family has arranged for a private viewing on Thursday, followed by a funeral with full military honors on Friday. The Friday service will be at 4:30p EDT. Since space is limited, the service will be live-streamed online with this link: https://vimeo.com/548897554/ed0c4b300d

    For those who are interested in sharing their stories of Rick with his friends and family, there is a board setup for posts: https://www.kudoboard.com/boards/LRPQfKtV=

    You may also wish to post messages to the funeral home's Tribute Wall for Rick available here: https://www.lastingtributesfuneralcare.com/obituaries/Richard-Brennan-6/

    The NOAA Association of Commissioned Officers (ACO) has established the Brennan Family Service Support Fund. From the ACO’s website, you may make a donation to help support meals, flowers, and other immediate comfort to Rick’s family. Although no specific plans have been made at this time, the ACO has a longer term vision of supporting causes for which RDML Brennan was passionate should donations remain after immediate needs are met. The ACO website is as follows: https://noaacorpsaco.org/


    A short biography on Rick:

    Rear Admiral (lower half) (RDML) Rick Brennan became Coast Survey Director and U.S. National Hydrographer in April 2021, and is the 31st leader of the office since the first superintendent, Ferdinand R. Hassler, was appointed in 1833. He is responsible for overseeing NOAA’s hydrographic services, including the mapping and charting of all U.S. coastal waters, as well as representing the U.S. in international hydrographic efforts.

    RDML Brennan has served with the NOAA Officer Corps for over 20 years. He has served on nearly every hydrographic ship in the NOAA fleet and on the U.S. Coast Guard Ice Breaker Healy. Previously, he led the Hydrographic Systems and Technology Program, served as the Chief of the Atlantic Hydrographic Branch, and served as the mid-Atlantic Navigation Manager. Other recent assignments include serving as the Chief of the Coast Survey Development Laboratory, as a senior policy advisor to VADM Manson Brown, the Assistant Secretary for Environmental Observations and Predictions at NOAA, and Chief of the Hydrographic Surveys Division. RDML Brennan has a Master of Science degree in ocean engineering from the University of New Hampshire’s Center for Coastal and Ocean Mapping, and a Bachelor of Science degree in civil engineering from the Citadel.

    Things are changing on LinkedIn for the THSOA organization. Previously, each chapter had its own group and individual page on LinkedIn. As THSOA continues to grow and expand, those pages will be consolidated into a single national THSOA page where all the chapters can post their regional events and announcements for all to see. Please stay up to date on the latest and follow the THSOA National LinkedIn Page at the link below:

We are excited to return to New Orleans in person!
     
    ASBPA is the nation’s first organization to promote science-based policies for the preservation of coastal areas. The theme of the 2021 conference, “Geaux Resilient”, continues to broaden our focus across the entire physical coastal and estuarine system. The National Coastal Conference provides an opportunity for coastal stakeholders and managers to develop collaborative networks to promote best management practices, while learning the latest science, engineering, and policy needed to maintain and improve the health of our beachfront and estuarine shorelines and ecosystems.
     
    Technical, policy-oriented, and coastal floodplain resource and flood risk management presentations or posters are invited for a broad range of coastal & estuarine ecology, science, engineering, economics, and policy. Specific topics include, but are not limited to:

    • Beach restoration and management
    • Coastal design concepts and projects
    • Green/grey infrastructure and living shorelines
    • Regional comprehensive coastal studies
    • Lessons learned from storms and extreme events
    • Coastal & estuarine modeling
    • Coastal hazard mapping & analysis tools
    • Sea level rise guidance, planning, and policy
    • Lagoon, wetland, marsh, and estuary restoration
    • Regional sediment management
    • Economics of coastal resources
    • Federal, state, and local coastal policy, regulatory and legal issues
    • Sand source availability and sand rights
    • Coastal infrastructure management
    • Resiliency and adaptation policy
    • “Nuisance flooding” and urban flooding challenges
    • Lessons and issues in coastal communication and outreach

    Presentations may be PowerPoint or poster format. Abstracts (up to 500 words) are due by May 1 for PP presentations, and August 29 for Poster presentations. Submit abstracts via the online form by visiting our Future Meetings page at https://asbpa.org/conferences/future-meetings/.
     
    Please note presenters are responsible for their travel expenses and registration fees. Notification of PowerPoint presentation status will occur by June 18, 2021.

    Join us this International Women’s Day for the first in our IMarEST Explores panel series.

    It is well documented that greater gender equality increases economic growth and GDP. Improving gender diversity is one of the single fastest ways to speed development in any industry – creating a bigger talent pool, more skills and fresh ideas, not to mention a different point of view. But in practice, the path to achieving this vision is riddled with obstructions.

    Our panel will explore the importance of equality and diversity through a personal, local, and global lens, and will examine challenges, triumphs, and ambitions for the future.

    As an attendee, you will have the opportunity to ask your questions to our panel, and to join us afterwards for an optional post-event interactive networking session, where you can meet other attendees from around the world.

    You can find more information here: https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/imarest-explores-gender-diversity-in-the-marine-industry-tickets-137888019779
