12 ST | January 2018 www.sea-technology.com umentary "Chasing Coral" at http:// bit.ly/2BxmYG7). The goal of the blog is to give our readers more information, and fast- er, than is possible with our month- ly publication. We hope the blog will entice people to discover Sea Technolo- gy and stick around. To access and sign up to receive blog updates, vis- it https://seatechnologymagazine. com. The blog, however, is just one component of the changes we're making in our online presence. Visit https://seatechnologymag- azine.com to view our revamped website, now featuring both our blog and material found in the print magazine—which is available in a complete, interactive online edition, free of charge to qualified readers just by signing up. We think you will find a more at- tractive and useful site, chock full of interesting information and offering a range of marketing opportunities for companies seeking digital cov- erage as either a supplement or al- ternative to their print advertising. Helping guide those advertisers will be MJ McDuffee, who joined our staff late last year as director of business development. MJ, well known for her years of experience in the oceans publication commu- nity, is also directly responsible for advertising sales in a large North American territory, serving compa- nies east of the Mississippi River. She joins John and Barb Sabo, handling the rest of North America, and John Gold, our international sales representative, in rounding out the ST sales organization—sup- ported by Sue Ingle Owen in the home office. Contact information for our sales team can be found in the masthead on p. 7. Further advancing our leadership position this year, Sea Technology is pleased to be working with the newly formed International Ocean Science and Technology Industry Association (IOSTIA) on a variety of initiatives in 2018. (See ST Novem- ber 2017, p. 40 for details.) We are particularly pleased to be partnering with IOSTIA on a networking event to kick off Capi- tol Hill Ocean Week (CHOW), June 5 to 7, 2018, the premier annual conference in the U.S. examining current marine, coastal and Great Lakes policy issues. Convened by the National Ma- rine Sanctuary Foundation every June, CHOW brings together more than 600 national and global policy makers, scientists, scholars, busi- nesses and conservation leaders to address pressing science, conserva- tion and management issues facing our ocean and Great Lakes. People around the world have a virtual all-access pass to the conference and its headliners through free live streaming of every session, access to additional Web-only interviews and a dynamic social media pres- ence. Details were still being finalized as this issue went to press, but Sea Technology and IOSTIA, in associ- ation with the U.S. Senate's Com- merce Subcommittee on Oceans, Atmosphere, Fisheries, and Coast Guard, plan to host an event on the evening of June 4, in conjunction with IOSTIA's Blue Tech expo to be held earlier that day. Supported by select corporate sponsors, the gathering will be held on Capitol Hill and provide a unique business networking re- ception with government decision makers—including procurement officers—along with key industry representatives and decision mak- ers all in attendance. Watch these pages for additional details as they become available. Lastly, thank you to our loyal readers, advertisers and industry colleagues for your many years of support and encouragement. We could not do this without you and we look forward to serving you even better in 2018 and beyond. ST NEW BLOG! seatechnologymagazine.com S EA T ECHNOLOGY
