To clarify, you can’t join COMPASS, but we welcome your participation in what COMPASS has to offer!  COMPASS itself does not have members; however, professionals in the ship services and supply sector are welcome to  attend the annual COMPASS meeting and sign up to receive occasional communications about what’s happening in the North American ship supply and services sector.  The COMPASS meeting, hosted annually each spring, is planned by a committee which is comprised of members from the two North American ship supply and services associations – NAMS and CSSA.  Each of these organizations has two types of members – Regular members (who are ship chandlers) and Associate members who are service and supply companies that are resources to the chandlers.

NAMS and CSSA have different membership application processes and requirements for membership.  To learn more about becoming a member of either of these organizations, please click the appropriate link below:
