“At DLS, we were very proud to hear about Ave’s appointment as NAMSGlobal treasurer. The NAMS team couldn’t have chosen a more trustworthy, hard-working professional and we’re sure he will serve with the utmost integrity,” said Harry Ward, President, DLS Marine.

I look forward to working with the board as we continue to build on the Ethical Conduct Policies and Professional Marine Surveying Practices that are so integral to the foundation of NAMSGlobal,” said Boudreaux. “This work will positively impact our ability to support our clients at DLS Marine.”
