  • About World Maritime Day


For the past several years, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) has promoted awareness about the maritime community through World Maritime Day.  Issues important to the global maritime industry (technical cooperation, seafarers, climate change, etc.) are highlighted at events occurring in London, a selected parallel country, and throughout the maritime nations.  It has been observed in the United States since 2006, in Canada since 2008, and in 2009 the United States hosted the Parallel Event. Last year, Transport Canada was host to the World Maritime Day Observance in Vancouver.  This year’s focus is on piracy.
 

  • About the Coast Guard Mission Conference

The October 28th  Coast Guard Mission Conference will bring regional and industry attention to the core responsibilities of the United States Coast Guard-- Safety, Security and Stewardship-- through panel discussions on each of the missions.  Speakers include senior industry, regional governmental and Coast Guard leaders covering a wide array of topics including supply chain security, border protection, innovation technology, and the role of non-government organizations. Registration is limited.  For information on attending, contact r.lambert@namepa.net.
