The THSOA Officer Elections started today (11/15/2013). An email was sent out to all current members about voting in the election. In the email you will receive your member number and an access code. This combination can only be used once. If you did not receive this email then it can one of three problems:
- Your membership is not current.
- We have a bad email address on file for you.
- The email is in your spam folder.
If you did not receive the email today, please contact me and we can figure out why. I can also provide you with the details (member number and access code) needed for you to cast your vote.
On Monday, 11/18/2013, I will be posting the members whose emails were returned for a bad email address.
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:
NOAA is seeking qualified candidates to apply for up to five voting member vacancies to serve on its Hydrographic Services Review Panel (HSRP) as of January 1, 2014.
The HSRP is a federal advisory committee that advises the NOAA Administrator on current and emerging oceanographic and marine science technologies relating to operations, research and development; and dissemination of data pertaining to: a) hydrographic surveying; b) shoreline surveying; c) nautical charting; d) water level measurements; e) current measurements; f) geodetic measurements; g) geospatial measurements; h) geomagnetic measurements; and i) other oceanographic/marine related sciences.
The NOAA Administrator welcomes applications from individuals with expertise in navigation data, products and services; marine cartography and geospatial information systems; geodesy; physical oceanography; coastal resource management; including fisheries management and regional marine planning; and other science-related fields.
To apply for membership on the Panel, applicants must respond to the requirements listed in the attached federal register notice.
If you have questions or require further information, please contact Kathy Watson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I am extremely pleased to welcome the return of the Seahorse, now in its electronic form, the eSeahorse. When the education committee polled the membership at the end of 2012, one of the items most requested was the return of the Seahorse. You can download the first edition (Summer 2013) of eSeahorse here.

In late 2012, the Education Committee of THSOA conducted a survey of the membership in order to assist in the development of our long-term education initiatives. The results of the survey were very interesting and we wanted to share them with the membership.
Our thanks to those of you who participated in the survey.
