THSOA-LA Changes Designation to THSOA-Southeast Chapter

FLORIDA ADDED TO THE AREA SERVED BY THSOA_SOUTHEAST CHAPTER (Formerly LA Chapter)

The THSOA - Southeast Chapter is excited to announce an expansion in the area that we serve as the focal point for hydrographic activities. The state of Florida along with Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama is now represented by one chapter. To better reflect the areas we cover we are also changing our name to THSOA-Southeast Chapter (LA, MS, AL, FL). Our new email address is THSOA_southeastchapter@yahoo.com.

THSOA - Southeast Chapter serves as the focal point for hydrographic activities in the Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida areas. The Board would like to invite members and non-members to attend our monthly meetings to learn more about the organization, meet other professionals, and gain further knowledge on the subject of hydrography. With technical presentations given at most monthly meetings, one can learn more about the industry, equipment and application updates, as well as news in the industry.
