The Awards dinner will begin at 6:00pm at the National Press Club.

NAMEPA’s “Safety at Sea” seminar features topics such as areas of interest and concern for the USCG, mitigating safety risks for shipowners, improving cruise line safety, safety and the law, marine planning, insuring safety risks, the changing face of piracy, seafarer welfare report card, and concluding with the Acting Maritime Administrator, Paul “Chip” Jaenichen, who will discuss ensuring maritime safety in an ever-changing world.

Paul “Chip” Jaenichen was appointed by President Obama and sworn in as Deputy Maritime Administrator on 20 July 2012.  He was named Acting Maritime Administrator on 4 June 2013 and was nominated by President Obama to be the next Maritime Administrator on 11 September 2013.

"The maritime industry continues to examine and improve its safety practices," stated NAMEPA Chairman Clay Maitland. "Our seminar brings together experts in this area so we, as an industry, can continue our responsible stewardship of life, the environment, and property."

Industry experts include Captain Jonathan Burton of the USCG, Captain Rob Lorigan of OSG Ship Management, Inc., Richard Pruitt of Royal Caribbean Cruises Ltd., Jon Waldron of Blank Rome LLC, Dr. Sandra Whitehouse of Ocean Conservancy, Joseph Hughes of Shipowners Claims Bureau, Inc., Kevin Doherty of Nexus Consulting Group, Rev.
