Welcome to WAVES, our online community
Our Worldwide Association Virtual Engagement System, or WAVES, is one of the member benefits of the International Propeller Club of the United States. With message forums, blogs, and shared documents, it can connect you to thousands of your peers in the maritime industry in order to seek advice, ask questions, offer expertise, share resources, and build a support system.
Every member is subscribed to our Open Forum, and you are welcome to post here on any topic related to the Club or the maritime community, subject to the Code of Conduct linked above. In the future, we look forward to launching additional communities based on topics of interest or for members of certain groups: Port leaders, Student Ports, international board members, etc.
You have initially been subscribed to the Daily Digest, meaning you'll get one email each day containing all of the previous day's posts. If you'd like to change how you hear from us, log in and go to your profile to make those changes. If you have any questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org

To access the community: Click on the blue “Sign In” box on the top right corner of every page on our website, www.propellerclub.us.
The system will ask for your username and password. Your username is the email address we have in our database for you; click "Forgot my password” to go through an automated process to choose a memorable password.
Upon signing in the first time, you’ll be asked to review your profile. This is the data in the system about each member; however, there may be blanks or placeholder data to be corrected. You can submit updates via the report form on our homepage.
Every member is subscribed to our open forum, called "A worldwide virtual maritime community". Almost any Club or maritime topic is appropriate here, and as participation increases, additional communities will be added, based on interest in specific topics or for members of certain groups: Port leaders, international committees, etc.
We hope you’ll plan to participate as a way to strengthen our Propeller Club network: hear suggestions from other Ports, share your successes, and develop new industry contacts. WAVES depends on member participation to be successful. While Club staff will be active in WAVES, many questions will be better answered by other members, from their own experiences.
