Hampton Roads Section

One of the newer society sections, MTS Hampton Roads was formed in 2005 after Dr. Larry Atkinson, Ray Toll, and Mark Bushnell agreed with MTS Headquarters to start a section that could capitalize on the recognized potential of the Hampton Roads region, with its large concentration and variety of maritime interests. Initial membership of 15 has since grown to more than 50, representing NOAA, Navy, Coast Guard, academic, shipping, and maritime business-related activities.  For information on activities, please contact Section's leadership or visit the Hampton Roads Section's website as listed below.
