Fw: CALMITSAC Teleconference and our next full meeting
Ahoy Members and Friends,
Thought you might be interested in knowing more about this state group. Some of you may recall me mentioning it in the past. The Chairman, Capt. Robert Dockendorff, USN (Ret.) is a member of our Pacific Merchant Marine Council. I, as a representative of our council, serve on the CALMITSAC as well. I am also on a subcommittee. Attached are some of the agenda items for Wednesday's teleconference. You are welcome to take a look at them and listen in Wednesday but please do not comment - remain quiet. Call me for the passcode prior to the teleconference if so interested.
