More than 1,150 people attended The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers 2009 Annual Meeting and Expo, which was held Oct. 21-23 at the Providence (R.I.) Convention Center.

"In all aspects, the 2009 SNAME annual meeting was a resounding success," SNAME president Keith Michel said. "I would like to express my sincere appreciation to those who attended the meeting, the many SNAME volunteers who organized the technical programs and social events, the meeting sponsors and those who exhibited at our expo."

Twelve members received 50-year golden membership certificates at the annual president's luncheon, including Donald L. Blount, Joseph P. Fischer, William H. Garzke, Jr., Harold F. Greiner, Joseph P. Harkrader, Jr., Owen F. Hughes, Petros A. Lalangas, Thomas Lamb, John A. Mercier, John M. Ringelberg, Richard F. Smith and Vordoman H. Van Bibber.

The 2010 expo will be held Nov. 3-5 in Seattle with the annual SNAME golf tournament scheduled there for Nov. 2 and the second annual sailing regatta on Nov. 6.
