Revised Articles of Association adopted
The Walrus and Carpenter on Monument Street in London provided an excellent venue for a rare meeting of SUT Members at which the revised Articles of Association of the Society were formally adopted.
As a limited liability company registered with Companies House, we are obliged to lodge with them our Articles of Association, which could be best described as our constitution. First written in 1968 with some minor revisions made over the years, it was agreed by Council that it was time to bring the document up to date making it better reflect the Society’s role in the modern world, particularly with respect to our international aspirations. This task was undertaken by a small working group led by David Kirkley, Chairman of the SUT’s International Committee, over the last year. David explained to those present the broad changes that had been made and that this document and that he hoped it would remain relevant to the Society for many years to come.
In true SUT style, those present made the most of this additional – and hopefully rare – networking opportunity.
On Thursday, June 11th, SUT Houston Young Professionals (SUT YP) held their second annual crawfish boil at Ragin’ Cajun on Westheimer. The event attracted over 100 attendees from several different subsea companies in the Houston area. This year, we extended the invitation to students attending universities and recent graduates completing their internships in order to bridge the gap from graduation to young, experienced professionals. On top of that, several esteemed, seasoned professionals also attended the event, which was a great opportunity for the young professionals to meet such reputable individuals in a fun and relaxed setting. One of the seasoned professionals commented on how bright the room seemed to be. He was impressed with the new generation of subsea, and met several talented and innovative, future leaders. Overall, the event was a huge success, and SUT YP is already taking steps to make 2016’s crawfish boil an even better, more fantastic event.
SUT YP would like to thank our sponsors, Ocean Installer, GATE, Inc., and Technip Umbilicals for their gracious contribution and support towards this event.
