ON THE ROAD
How NMEA’s Director of Standards attends to business
Improving maritime safety around the globe
t Marine Electronics Journal we look forward to producing our
annual International Section, which gives us the opportunity
to report on markets and issues outside the US. In the past,
we’ve covered marine electronics action in Europe, Latin
America and Asia and talked to dealers and technicians who
install the latest wizardry on all types of recreational and commercial vessels
around the world.
This year we look closer to home—at the marine market in Canada, where
large volumes of boats and equipment of all sorts are traded across the border.
We’ll also tell you about a US manufacturer whose tracking equipment is
helping the Maldives prevent illegal foreign fishing in their waters. If you’ve
ever wondered what it’s like on the international technical meeting circuit, we
introduce you to NMEA Director of Standards Steve Spitzer. Following that is
a chat with Judy Johnson, who chairs the International Marine Electronics
Leading off the Special Section is a conversation with NMEA President &
Executive Director Mark Reedenauer that will bring you up to date on activities
both inside and outside the US.
