2010 ANNUAL DINNER
In concluding his speech, the President
stated that the history of the Institution over the last 150 years was reflected in the development of the design and construction of marine vessels and structures, and indeed the maritime industry as a whole. He believed that the
Institution could rightly and proudly claim to have made a significant contribution to that development, both collectively as an international organisation and individually through the work of its members. He felt sure that John Scott Russell, Edward Reed, Nathaniel Barnaby and the others who
The Rev. Bill Christianson “Have you heard this one, Sir?”
formed the Institution of Naval Architects in 1860 be proud of their legacy.
Rev’d Bill Christianson
In introducing the second speaker of the evening the President reminded those present that it was a tradition of the Annual Dinner for the speaker to be a man of the cloth. He therefore took great delight in welcoming back the Rev. Bill Christianson, past Secretary General of the Mission to Seafarers. Te President concluded the Dinner
by again thanking the evening’s speakers. He wished those who were proceeding homewards a safe journey, and hoped those who would not be leaving quite so soon would enjoy the remainder of the evening before they too had a safe journey home.
