OMSA Elects New Officers —Congressman Warns Of California Plan'

The Offshore Marine Service Association has elected eight new members to its board of directors replacing those whose terms have expired.

Capt. W. A. Mayberry, executive director of OMSA said those elected to two year terms are: chairman, Ken Waldorf, Zapata Gulf Marine Corp., Houston; vice chairman, Otto Candies Jr., Otto Candies, Inc., Des Allemands, La.; secretary/ treasurer, Charles Burrell, Leevac Corp., Morgan City, La.; John Bissell, Seal Fleet, Inc., Galveston; Jody Powers, Otis Engineering Corp., Harvey, La.; Ogden Thomas, Seahorse, Inc., Morgan City, La.; F. C. (Butch) Felterman, Galaxie Marine Service, Inc., Patterson, La.; and James Clement, Offshore Logistics, Inc., Lafayette, La.

The election was held at the association's recent quarterly meeting which was addressed by Rep. Billy Tauzin (D La.). The Congressman, who serves on important marine and energy committees, discussed standby vessels, warehouse vessels, and urged OMSA members to defeat the "California Plan," a moratorium proposal which would have deleterious impact on offshore energy interests.

OMSA, whose offices are located in New Orleans, La., promotes the goals and interests of firms providing vessel support services to all phases of the offshore oil, mineral, construction and pipelaying industries.

Its vessel owning members operate more than 3,000 vessels and employ more than 30,000 personnel.
