The Board of Trustees and program chair Walter Brown are delighted to invite members of the National Maritime Historical Society to join us for an informative and entertaining activity-packed annual meeting in Philadelphia. NMHS chairman Ronald Oswald encourages you to join us in this fantastic maritime location, in this wonderfully historic city, and for the fabulous presentations and activities we’ve planned for the meeting. For NMHS to flourish and grow, it is important that its leaders and members gather to share ideas to chart the Society’s course into the future. This support and interaction has kept us vital for more than half a century, and it is never more important than right now. We look forward to seeing you in Philly!
