"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.
